Description: Awareness Day aims to raise awareness about the Volunteer Wildfire Services and what we do, through educating the public about wildfires, and their impact on our natural heritage. Awareness Day is a fun day out, with loads of activities for the whole family. There will be non-stop entertainment for the children as they learn about fire, fire safety and firefighting. Fire Truck rides, Tree Climbing and Swings, Pumps and Hoses, Snake Shows, Knox Scanner Treasure Hunt as well as interesting exhibitions are all part of Awareness Day. One of the highlights of the day will be the firefighting demonstration, showing what the VWS does best, as well as full aerial support from a Fire Fighting helicopter. Our volunteers and Friends of VWS Jonkershoek will also provide a bustling food court and a tea garden to satisfy your hunger needs.
