What we do
Nationally & Internationally
Working on Fire Firefighters are typically called to assist with the management of local and international wildfires. In cooperation with authorities and Fire Protection Associations (FPAs), Working on FIre implements Integrated Fire Management (IFMS).
This includes creating fire awareness, proactively putting preventative measures in place (prescribed burns and reduction of fuel loads), partaking in suppression operations and rehabilitating burnt areas.
