The Development of a National Fire Danger Rating System for South Africa


2001


During 1998, South Africa passed the new National Veld and Forest Fire Act (Act 101 of 1998), hereafter referred to as ‘the Act’. The Act provides for the prevention of veld, forest and mountain fires through the deployment of a National Fire Danger Rating System (NFDRS). Such a system does not exist at a national level at this stage, although localised fire danger rating systems are used in some regions. The Department of Water Affairs and Forestry (DWAF) therefore contracted the CSIR to develop a NFDRS for South Africa. The NFDRS was developed by a team of experts, in consultation with the Veld and Forest Fire Committee of the Department of Water Affairs and Forestry and several key stakeholders.
