FORMATION AND REGISTRATION

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—

  1. regular veldfires; or
  2. a relatively uniform risk of veldfire; or
  3. relatively uniform climatic conditions, or
  4. 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.
