Long-service volunteers honoured

Volunteers with the City of Cape Town’s Disaster Risk Management Centre (DRMC) were honoured for reaching various long service milestones on Saturday 8 December.

The seventh annual DRMC awards ceremony saw 35 volunteers from across the metropole receive recognition for their many years of service, totalling 295 years in all.

On top of this, altogether 17 certificates of appreciation and commendation were handed to various individuals for their contribution to the volunteer corps.

The recipients were from Macassar, Athlone, Atlantis, Belhar, Fish Hoek, Melkbosstrand, Milnerton, Mitchell’s Plain, Ottery and Scottsdene.

“The City is in the enviable position of having nearly 400 active DRMC volunteers, who devote their time and energy to the organisation’s safety and security efforts,” said JP Smith, Mayoral Committee member for Safety and Security.

“They put in hundreds of hours each month, assisting with everything from humanitarian relief coordination efforts to assisting firefighting efforts in summer, and even the installation of smoke detectors, as was the case in Khayelitsha at the beginning of December. We could not achieve what we do as an administration without these volunteers, and I would like to thank every one of our volunteers for their selfless dedication to a greater cause.”
