Thanks to a grant from The Community Foundation, the Mafeking Volunteer Fire Department has high visibility signage to help make motorists aware of emergency incidents on the highways, ensuring the safety of fire fighters in attendance at an accident. In addition to a highly visible sign and stand with “Emergency Scene Ahead” written on it, the signage also includes eight electronic, very bright beacons which are on the running board of the rescue vehicle.

The Community Foundation is pleased to have been able to help make this safety measure available to Mafeking and R.M. of Mountain.
