The ANC Welcomes the R50m Fire Station for Thokoza

AF Madella

The ANC welcomes the handing over of a R50 million state-of-the-art fire station to serve the community of Thokoza and Katlehong on Friday, 03 November 2017. This new fire station replaces the old, smaller structure which had three fire engines and three ambulances. This new upgraded Fire Station is fully equipped with a new water tanker, a major pumper, rescue pumper, medium pumper and four ambulances. There are now five fire engines.

The fire station was constructed over a two year period has provided employment opportunities for 66 local workers and six local subcontractors.

The ANC is of the view that this new structure will enable the fire station to respond quicker to emergencies and cover a wider area, as well as responding to the high risk Alrode industrial area, which has potentially flammable petrol depots in the vicinity.

The fire station also runs community awareness training programmes to empower citizens on dealing with emergencies and practical steps to take in case of fire. This is service delivery at its best, and a good story to tell.

I thank you
