Your application contains information that you want to keep confidential - MAFPA agrees. Your private information is kept just that - private: we store your applications in our online vault.
There's no place more accessible than the internet, so now, on our website you can submit your membership application, apply for a burn permit, and even book a Working on Fire (WoF) team, all from the comfort of your own home.
MAFPA applications used to be filled out by hand. It was messy, difficult, and required you to be in a certain place at a certain time. That's why we moved our system to the cloud. No more paperwork.
Moved? Sold / bought property? Changed your email? That used to mean you had more documents to fill out, but not anymore, just login to your account and change your details yourself! Now you can get back to doing what you do best, and leave the paperwork to us.
The National Veld and Forest Fire Act holds people responsible for basic fire management on land that is deemed to be under their control. It is an irrefutable fact that management cannot be done without basic understanding and information about the subject or circumstance that needs to be managed.Even the most elementary fire management plan requires a basic risk analysis to gauge the extent of the risk that needs to be managed. Only when the risk is assessed can reasonable steps be taken to lessen the risk. Failure to apply reasonable rudimentary fire management can lead to criminal charges or liability claims. Insurance companies are highly likely to repudiate claims where negligence is found to be a contributing factor. The Fire Risk Mapping system were accepted by MAFPA as a practical way in which members can apply basic fire management practices. Level 6 Fire Risk Maps is a part of the Risk and Resource Survey that constitutes a Level 6 disaster management plan. Level 6 plans are used to produce a Sector Fire Management Plan. The MAFPA area of operations is roughly 10 000km² with 9 886km² falling within the Mangaung Metro Municipality borders.
The MAFPA Districk is divided into 10 Fire Management Areas and each area is subdivided into Sectors. Fire Management Area Committees elects and appoints an Area Manager.
To ensure that Sectors can be efficiently serviced and fire management can be effectively implemented Sectors is generally not bigger than 40 thousand and smaller than 20 thousand hectares. Each Sector is led by a Sector Leader that is also a member of the Area Committee.
