The SCFPA is involved with a whole range of different municipalities. Team work here is very crucial in order to prevent and suppress wild fires.
The Southern Cape Fire Protection Association (SCFPA) is situated in the Western Cape and extends eastwards from the town of Mossel Bay in the west, to the Eastern Cape border at the Keurbooms River. It falls entirely within the Eden District Municipality (EDM), and covers the entire jurisdictional areas of the three Category B Municipalities, namely George, Knysna and Plettenberg Bay, as well as parts of the Uniondale, Mossel Bay and Oudtshoorn municipalities.
The SCFPA aims to contribute to community development by eliminating loss of life and human injury in veld fires, progressively reducing impacts on property, job creation and environmental values while promoting the useful role of veld fires as a management tool.
