Jamica (Jakes) Awaseb, who runs the workshop at DFN expressed his delight with this great innovative project by the company. “I am very happy with this project as it took innovation to develop a truck which will assist the farm and community. The project was an ideal opportunity to showcase great workmanship and involved local skills who assisted with the execution of the conversion. Further - the workshop apprentices learned a great deal from this project.”
The capabilities of the fire truck were shown to the local counsellor Dennis Coetzee, Regional Counsellor of the Karas region as well as local community leaders and municipal managers of Ariamsvlei. "It is indeed a good initiative taken by the management of DFN to come up with such a truck, built and equipped by themselves. This truck will ease the task of distinguishing fire on the Komsberg and Desert Fruit farms respectively. The gesture of even making the truck available when a fire occurs in the Ariamsvlei settlement about 60 km from there, and to surrounding farms, is also much appreciated. Thank you very much and keep it up Mr. Seth and your team,” added Dennis.
