The Mkhondo Fire & Rescue Service was for many years under the Department of Public Safety - Traffic Division and the Traffic Officers then had to perfrom both Traffic and Rescue Services in the Municipal Area.


In December 2006 the Council made a resolution and the Mkhondo Fire & Rescue Services was born and Mr Nortje was appointed as Chief Fire Officer. Mr Nortje founded the Fire Department and as soon as March 2007 the first Fire Fighters where appointed. 


The Department had many hurdels that they needed to overcome but Mr. Nortje built the Department with lots of Passion and Patience.
