5 Sep,2017Profiles, WoFire News

The Working on Fire programme in the Eastern Cape welcomed back 21 Crew Leaders who recently completed the Type 2 Crew Leader course.

The young men and women left the province to attend the Type 2 Crew Leader course which ran from 24 May to 14 July.

Ground Operations Manager of the province, Vuyo Poponi, says the province is proud of the new Crew Leaders and decided to have the celebration to ensure that they start their work with a positive mindset.

He says this was the first time the province had sent such a large group to the Crew Leader course and they had all passed.

“We also conducted a standardisation workshop for these new leaders so that they understand the programme, the day to day running of the business as well as to ensure that the same message is relayed from their level down to participants,” Poponi says.

At the celebratory dinner after the workshop the General Manager, Monde Maqula, wished the new leaders well for the future.
