CRA Membership includes a free subscription to a private firefighting service which would normally cost you R420 p.a.
We seek to provide differentiated value-added services for residents with a particular focus on safety and security.
As part of this drive one of the areas of concern that was identified was fire safety – due to the current limitations of the City of Jo’burg fire services. There have been a number of house fires in and around our area in the last few years, one in Craighall the other in Craighall Park.
The CRA has therefore contracted with Fire Ops SA to provide all members (i.e. private households, complexes and businesses) with access to reliable fire services.
What does this mean?
By being a CRA member you have access to a FREE Fire Ops SA subscription as part of your CRA Membership
- The monthly subscription fee will be paid by the CRA as part of your annual membership fees.
- The only charges you will incur are if Fire Ops SA respond to a fire call out or for firefighting on your premises.
