Working on Fire’s vision is to be the leading global integrated fire management agency, making a sustainable difference in our environment and people’s lives.

At the recent Working on Fire (WOF) strategy workshop, the WOF Executive Committee, Heads of Departments, General Managers, Assistant General Managers and the Board Chairperson, Johan Heine, collaborated on innovative ideas around further improving the WOF Programme. This intensive three-day indaba was held from 20 – 22 February 2019 in Mbombela, Mpumalanga and focused on how this award-winning Expanded Public Works Programme (EPWP) – funded by the Department of Environmental Affairs (DEA) – can become a global leader in Integrated Fire Management, while continuing to improve people’s lives.

WOF Managing Director, Trevor Abrahams, passionately encouraged those in attendance and explained that it was essential for the whole of WOF – participants through to management – to understand, adopt and embrace this vision in order to ensure the sustainability of the programme towards 2021 and beyond.

“Yes, Working on Fire is hailed as the most successful Expanded Public Works Programme in South Africa but we will have to really live our values – Adaptability, Teamwork, Excellence, Accountability and Making a Difference – if we want to ensure that our vision of becoming a leading global implementer of Integrated Fire Management becomes a reality. In addition to that, we need our responsibility towards making a significant contribution through skills development and the upliftment of our youth in particular to remain a priority,” Abrahams explained.

To get the ball rolling on this new vision, Working on Fire’s senior management intend to engage all staff company-wide over the next eight weeks to ensure their buy-in and support in implement this new vision into the future.
