The Billboard magazine recently purchased a large number of copies of the beautiful coffee-table book, THE CAPE AFLAME, Cape Town’s Dance With Fire, with all the proceeds going to Cape based volunteer wildland-firefighting, animal welfare and other public-benefit organisations.
The book is a permanent record of the 2015 Muizenberg fire, with a detailed, educative case study of the Western Cape’s integrated fynbos wildfire management.
A total of around R400 000 was raised through the sale of the book, all of which was donated to The Cape of Good Hope SPCA Wildlife and horsecare units, the Cape Peninsula Fire Protection Association, the SANP Honorary Rangers (Table Mountain Region), and the Volunteer Wildfire Services.
To WIN one of these splendid books about the Cape Fires of 2015, as mentioned in the September edition of The Billboard, please send an email with your message of thanks for the firefighters to email@example.com. Offer available while stocks last!
Congratulations to the following WINNERS of the
The Cape Aflame book:
To all our much esteemed firefighters thank you for your dedication in fighting the 2015 fire saving many animals lives and peoples homes. Many times you persevered with danger to yourselves, for long hours at a time, thirsty, hungry and extremely tired. Thank you, thank you to everyone involved whether fighters or whoever helped in anyway deserves the greatest praise.
To the super firefighters, You done a GREAT job. Having hiked the Silvermine mountains for many years, ( +- 40! ) The damage was kept to a minimum by your efforts, & i am glad to report that it is now recovering well. Many thanks, LAWRENCE SCOTT, TOKAI.
We are truly blessed to have such brave fire fighters in the deep south. Our home came very close to being destroyed by this fire, and can’t thank those involved enough for all the painstaking hours they put in to extinguishing the fires, as well as risking their lives for the people of Cape Town as a whole. Well done guys! Many Thanks, Brian Currin
Thanks to all the firefighters. They did an amazing job under dangerous conditions to save houses and stop the fires from spreading further. Particular thanks to the colunteer firefighters who have day jobs as well.
To all the wonderful volunteers and full time Fire men and women and other services.

We definitely sleep better at night knowing you are there to help us all.
