“Friends of the Falls”
HUCTO is trying to revive FOTF and is appealing to anyone who would like to help for 3 hours a week to meet-and-greet visitors to the Falls view site - and to record number of visitors and where they come from.
Eskom load shedding has become a STARK reality again. Subscribers of Alarm Monitoring and Armed Response services are encountering unavoidable issues related to load shedding. Please note that these issues are industry related and all security service providers are affected.
The sheer volume of alarm calls that arise during and after load shedding keeps our KSS Controllers working tirelessly, because during load shedding alarm activations can increase by up to 1000%. Our Armed Response and back-up units do their utmost to respond to, and check on each alarm activation timeously.
Please be patient, as client safety and security is paramount.
Please do not test your alarm system during load shedding – this will result in KSS having to follow-up with your “false alarm” and may lead to a response delay to an actual emergency.
Changing back-up batteries frequently cannot be over-emphasised. The battery of an alarm is the lifeblood of any security system, that doesn’t have an alternative source of power when the electricity goes off. For more advice contact Sashen on 082 870 0138 or Gary on 082 894 7628.
