The SCFPA relies heavily on its partners, members and other landowners. The best way to reach all of these people and most importantly; the not-yet members is through news articles in local newspapers. In these news articles we give the people information about the SCFPA, its advantages and how we can assist, as well as highlights of recent fires, prevention strategies, acknowledgements, training, threats etc. We usually post in the following newspapers and/or websites: Suid-Kaap forum, George Herald Express, Knysna-Plett Herald, AgriEDEN website, AgriEco, Landbouweekblad, Working on Fire newsletter and website. As well as EDEN FM radio station.

How long did the Winter fire season extend for in 2013?
We do not have a winter fire season in the Southern Cape region but a whole year fire season.
