Dedicated fire fighters in the Western Cape can breathe a sigh of relief as their workload will become lighter.

Forty trained fire fighters and seven trainees are set to join the City’s fire fighting team next month. The department is also set to get a new fire engine in March.

The fire rescue service in the province have been experiencing a shortage of fire fighters, a lack of parity in salaries and ageing equipment.

The City’s Emergency Services Pat Adams told a daily newspaper that the city was hopeful about tackling the problems in the fire rescue service in the near future.

Despite the problems, fire fighters in the city were able to put out a number of fires across the peninsula in recent weeks.
