Formation of Fire Protection Associations
Landowners may form an association for the purpose of predicting, preventing, managing and extinguishing veldfires and apply for its registration as a fire protection.
A fire protection association may be formed by owners who wish to co-operate in respect of an area which has—
- regular veldfires; or
- a relatively uniform risk of veldfire; or
- relatively uniform climatic conditions, or
- relatively uniform types of forest or vegetation.
Registration of fire protection associations
An application for registration as a fire protection association must be made in the prescribed way. Please visit this link “How to register an FPA” or contact KZNFPA on 033-330 8421 for assistance in this regard.
