New Fire Chief for CWDM

The Cape Winelands District Municipality’s Fire Services has a new Chief! We congratulate Chief Fire Officer Wayne Josias on his appointment on 1 June 2021.

Mr Josias, or Chief as he will now be known, started his career as a firefighter in 1993 at the City of Cape Town’s Fire and Rescue services. While in their employ, Mr Josias completed further studies which enabled him to apply for the position of Deputy Fire Chief at the CWDM in 2006.

Since his appointment at the CWDM, Mr Josias has, among other achievements, established the Cape Winelands Fire Training Academy. The academy has an excellent reputation for training fire personnel across the province, and all qualifications are recognised and accredited.

When asked about his vision for the Fire Services, Mr Josias stated, “Our firefighters, who collectively have hundreds of years of experience, are responsible for saving lives and property. It is a great honour to be entrusted with the job of leading the Cape Winelands District Municipality’s Fire Services. I intend to build on the strong foundation of team work, ongoing training and partnership that is already in place, thus ensuring that together, we will continue to grow in efficiency and remain a sustainable division that strives to deliver high quality services to our citizens.”



The CWDM’s Fire Services is proud to announce the appointment of its new “Chief” as from 1 June 2021. Mr Wayne Josias was the Deputy Fire Chief from 2006 and the establishment of the Cape Winelands Fire Training Academy counts among his top achievements. He intends to build on the strong foundation of teamwork, ongoing training and partnership to ensure that citizens receive a high-quality service from its Fire Service.
