Our very own female firefighter flies SA flag high in Canada

25 Aug,2015WoF International Deployments

As South Africans celebrate women’s month, Esther Mtyilibe is on the hotshot team that left for Canada to assist in dousing out ravaging fires. She comes from Fochville in the far West Rand.

Esther said that it was her first time going to board a flight. She said, because it was her first time on a flight trip she felt anxious and excited at same time.

When asked how her family felt about trip to Canada, she said they were sad because it was such a short notice. ‘‘Because I am a strong woman, I therefore had a duty to assist fellow people especially on this mission and was going to make our country proud,’’ she said.
