Oakhurst all fired up
The two-day event last week in celebration of firefighters' courage and their dedication to communities was well supported by Oakhurst Insurance. The company was also involved in the upgrade of the living quarters at the George Fire Department last year. "When asked to get involved in this year's International Firefighters' Day they did not hesitate," said George Fire Chief, Neels Barnard. Managing Director of Oakhurst Insurance,
Peter Grindlay, encouraged locals to get more involved with the emergency services. "International Firefighters' Day 2018 was a roaring success, but we shouldn't need a catastrophic fire or parade to remind us of the great work they do," he said.
