Dare to help in an emergency

We may unexpectedly become involved in an emergency situation. For example, we may come across a traffic accident or encounter a person who has fallen badly on the street. Both the Rescue Act and the Road Traffic Act require all of us to assist those in an emergency. The best helper is the one who acts immediately. Take a look at the checklist for guidance.

The Rescue Department reminds you about the appropriate disposal of garden waste

Many people start their spring gardening and yard work around the Easter holidays. The Rescue Department would like to remind people that a good way to dispose of garden waste is to compost it or deliver it to waste station. The burning of garden waste is prohibited in urbanised areas. If you burn leaves and brushwood in a sparsely populated area, you must consider the weather conditions, safety concerns and your neighbours.
