DISASTER RESPONSE PUT TO THE TEST

22 September 2022

Kouga Municipality’s Fire and Disaster Management, in conjunction with Working on Fire, Metro Ambulance Services, Gardmed, and Private Care, conducted a disaster simulation last week Thursday, September 15 – evaluating how rapidly and effectively emergency teams respond to disasters. The simulation was a re-enactment of a taxi containing a few passengers that rolled and caught fire at the Palmietvlei off-ramp outside Humansdorp on the N2. It is used as an exercise to assess the response, communication, and collaboration of emergency teams during a disaster incident.
