The Volunteer Wildfire Services (VWS) was formed in 1999/2000 by a handful of members to help combat the devastating fires that raged in the Cape at that time.

Now, with approximately 220 members at four stations (Newlands, Jonkershoek, South Peninsula and the newly established Grabouw Station), VWS is a highly organised Non Profit Organisation, run and managed by volunteers. VWS has assisted the Table Mountain National Park, CapeNature, Overberg District Municipality and Winelands District Municipality with some of the wildest fires Cape Town and the Western Cape have experienced.

Working closely with other emergency service organisations in wild-land fire management such as Table Mountain National Park, CapeNature, Cape Town Fire & Emergency Services, Disaster Management, Winelands Fire Brigade, Stellenbosch Fire Brigade, Overberg District Municipality and Working on Fire. This has meant that to date VWS has achieved over 56,000 active firefighting hours between its members and stations.

With the ongoing support of the community, VWS will continue its goal of saving and protecting South Africa’s natural heritage, property, lives and precious mountain water catchment areas.

Holding the line between Fire and Fynbos.
