Fire and Rescue

Overview

The Overberg District Municipality provides a full fire service as per the Fire Brigade Service Act, 1987 (Act 99 of 1987), to the Cape Agulhas, Theewaterskloof and Swellendam Municipalities.

The service responds from the different stations situated in Swellendam, Caledon, Bredasdorp, Grabouw, and Villiersdorp. Satellite stations are staffed by volunteers in Greyton, Riversonderend, Suurbraak, Malgas and Barrydale. Responses to emergency calls are activated from the control centre and responded to from the different stations.

The priority of the unit is to ensure the safety of the Overberg communities and visitors.
