Canada will be receiving the aid of 301 South African firefighters to assist the Canadian Interagency Forest Fire Centre in the countries wildland fire suppression efforts at the province of Alberta.

This deployment of wildland firefighters is the biggest South African deployment ever outside of the army to assist a foreign country.

CIFFC is proud of South African fire fighters from their Working on Fire programme and with no doubt believe that they will do South Africa proud to provide these essential services to Canada.

 In April, Working on Fire held a deployment boot camp in Gauteng to prepare 400 South African firefighters for deployment and to meet international standards.
