Organised labours to fight municipal and flora fires have been around for millennia. Though celebrating International Firefighters’ Day (IFFD) was only marked on 4 May 1999.
In the Catholic tradition, a feast is prepared for the patron St. Florian, the saint of firefighters, chimney sweeps, and brewers. Did you know the cross of Saint Florian or the Maltese cross is known worldwide as a symbol of the fire service and remains a familiar mark of firefighters and organisations that support them?
We honour the service, sacrifice and unselfish labour and salute the men and women who help keep us safe, protect our communities and our wilderness. We celebrate the men and women who have given their lives in the line of duty.
We plead with our community to keep this day in remembrance for every person in the emergency service, firefighters, emergency medical technicians, wildlife activists, and all the volunteer firefighters.
We can observe and support their mission by wearing internationally recognised IFFD ribbons in red for fire and blue for water.
We urge the public to participate in events or sponsor their local emergency services providers during their time of need.
With Social Media trained on Cape Town this past week and the news of the local flora fire at UCT and Rhodes Memorial, Bosman Plumbing and their team would like to thank every person involved for their assistance and charitable efforts.
