The Cape fires have been in the news on more than one occasion in the past few months. The latest shows the uproar over the negligence of some property owners to ensure that adequate fire prevention is in place. Negligence acts such as not removing invasive plants like pines, wattle and gums have all contributed to the increase in fires and damage caused by fires in recent years.
The potential risk involved for firefighters and pilots alone should be enough to convey the seriousness of the matter however this doesn’t seem to be the case. Businesses face serious financial loss due to damage of property, machinery and even stock. Damages to infrastructure such as transport routes will also have a negative impact on businesses and their employees.
