For the first time ever, a team of the City of Johannesburg’s Emergency Management Services (CoJ’s EMS) employees including firefighters, paramedics and support staff heeded the call from the Executive Mayor, Herman Mashaba, to keep the streets of the city clean on 9 February.
These passionate employees rolled up their sleeves and took part in the A Re Sebetseng staff participation initiative by cleaning up a dumping site at the corner of Hay Avenue and Florida Street in Westbury, just outside Roodepoort.
EMS spokesperson, Robert Mulaudzi, urged residents to continue to maintain the litter-free state of the area which was cleaned up, and encouraged them to join the movement by being environmental warriors who constantly ensure that their streets are clean.
He also encouraged all the EMS staff to continue to make a difference in the lives of the residents as mandated by one of the department’s foremost aims – that of saving the lives and properties of the citizens of the city.
