*UPDATE ON DISASTER RISK MANAGEMENT EFFORTS*
Staff continue to help coordinate the humanitarian response following the fire that broke out on the slopes behind UCT.
To date, the only evacuations that have taken place are of UCT students in residences on campus.
No private residences have been evacuated - should the need
arise, DRMC will go door-to-door in affected areas to assist residents.
For now, residents are advised to keep doors and windows closed to manage the impact of smoke caused by the fire.
The City thanks residents who have come forward with donations - these are being distributed to the various command posts by DRMC staff.
Any further donations can be dropped off at the Roeland Street fire station - a reminder that key items required are water, Energade, energy bars and Eyegene.
The DRMC and Fire & Rescue Service will provide updates as the situation unfolds.
Media are requested to monitor the WhatsApp group for such updates.
