Employment Question

Unread post by AAFire » Sat Jan 14, 2017 12:47 pm

Good evening,

I am interested in a being a forestry firefighter in South Africa National Parks. American Firefighter, currently working as an Australian bush-firefighter. I understand some of these positions are with private contractors - if so what companies? If this is the wrong section please redirect me to the correct one or point me in the right direction to pursue this endeavor!

Thank you for your time,

Welcome to the forum AAFire! :clap:
I think it really depends if you are thinking of work and firefighting within a SANParks or outside of the organisation which will be the private ones.
Have a read through Fire Management which might help you with some contacts and info.
Sorry I can't be of more help, maybe someone else will have more info?

Welcome warm AAFire. :D No pun intended.

As I write, dangerous fires are blazing in the Cape. This really is such a needed skill. I wish you every success in your search.
