Working under the authority or SANParks and Cape Nature, the VWS is becoming an invaluable asset to the Western Cape and especially the communities who border the reserves and wildlands. This unit is made up of brave people. People who shoulder their kitbag, don their PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) and head up into the mountains and deep into the valleys. This is not work for the faint-hearted, as the heat and smoke is intense and leads to the ritualistic global firefighter motto "Safety First".

“One Team, Seven Challenges”
 
Just under 700 multi-sport athletes gathered at Gordon’s Bay Beach Front on Saturday, 11 January 2014 to partake in the action of the 12th annual Totalsports Challenge presented by Liberty Medical Scheme and REHIDRAT® SPORT.  Hugo reclaimed the Totalsports Challenge Champion title completing the 7-disciplined event, which is a combined distance of 123.5km of racing, in an impressive time of 07hours 06minutes 53seconds.
 
“Finishing second to Stuart Marais in 2013 and crossing the finish line first today were two great experiences for different reasons,” said Hugo.  “The 2013 event was an emotional struggle where I was forced to race till I had nothing left, scraping the barrel.  Today I didn’t have to do that, which is great as I have another race in two weeks time.  Totalsports has invested a lot in multi sport.  As a Totalsports Ambassador I am stoked to bring it home for them today and am very happy to have their label on my chest,” says Hugo.  Brett Van Coller came in second, while Simon Oosthuizen finished third.
