Cape Town’s fire services get millions to upgrade

Cape Town’s new mayoral committee has approved a 31-million rands cash injection for the city’s fire services. The decision was taken at Monday’s inaugural meeting of executive mayor Helen Zille’s committee. It is reported that Cape Town’s fire and rescue services currently fail to meet minimum standards required by law for staffing and vehicles. A report tabled at the meeting says 62-million rands must be spent over three years to recruit and train new staff and to buy fire and rescue vehicles and specialised equipment. The money approved on Monday is earmarked for new vehicles and equipment.
