Working on Fire

Working on Fire recruits and trains young men and women from marginalised communities as skilled wildland fire fighters to reduce the personal and economic harm caused by unwanted wildfire. There are currently more than 4000 people deployed at over 100 WoF bases across South Africa.
The team are based at Fisantekraal (FAFK) in the Western Cape for the fire season.

  • Greg Bishop - Excellent set of photos and some beautiful aircraft! In 31 years in the California Fire Service I’ve had the pleasure to be an eyewitness — at times not by choice — to the evolution of firefighting aircraft, from TBM’s and modified B-24/B-17 bombers, to the Super-scoopers and beauties like Bomber 7 (a personal favorite)!
