A call has been put out for First Nation wildland firefighters with experience, to help with the B.C. wildfire situation.
The First Nations’ Emergency Services Society issued the notice on Aug. 9, asking for First Nation communities and individuals with wildland firefighter experience and certification.
They are collecting information that will be forwarded to the BC Wildfire Service for employment recruitment for the remainder of the wildfire season.
The information needed is a name, First Nation, current wildfire certifications and contact information. That can be emailed to Jo-Anne Hales, communications coordinator, at jhales.fness.bc.ca. Alternatively, phone Hales at 250-462-1752.
