The City of Ekurhuleni houses a total of 119 informal settlements, thus driving awareness amongst its residents on fire safety is a priority.
The launch of the campaign themed, “Together Let’s Save Lives and Property by Preventing Fires,” will also mark the introduction of 600 volunteers which will be tasked with driving fire safety and prevention in their respective communities.

The number of volunteers – dubbed community emergency response teams – currently stands at over 400.
The city has extended the programme and trained more people in order to empower communities in informal settlements with knowledge and skills that will save their lives and property.
