11 September, 2013

(NNMU) Saasveld / SAIF Fire Symposium 2013

This event marks the 9th Fire Management symposium to be presented by (NMMU) Saasveld and the Southern African Institute of Forestry (SAIF).  One of the aims of this symposium is to transfer technical knowledge to fire managers. In the light of the catastrophic veld fires that destroy thousands of hectares in South Africa yearly, this is a worthy occasion and are annually attended by ± 200 people. During this event fire managers and authorities from different disciplines and different land uses (Nature Conservation, Agriculture, Disaster Management, Forestry, Local authorities, etc.), will come together to network and exchange ideas.  This is a unique opportunity not to be missed. The focus of this year's event will be on Incident command Systems (ICS) and alternatives to the use of Gramoxone in the preparation of fire/trace belts.
