How you helpAfrica Fire Mission's volunteers are critical to our work. We engage volunteers to assist us in all aspects of our work. If you are interested in volunteering with us but aren't sure in what capacity, let us know - we will help identify the best place for you.
About usAs a non-profit organization committed to building the capacity of fire departments across Africa, Africa Fire Mission is uniquely suited to help fill needs that governments or other agencies are not able address. Africa Fire Mission is providing firefighting training directly to the firefighters in Africa. We also ship quality used personal protective equipment and other firefighting tools to the fire services. This approach allows the fire services to build their capacity internally rather than relying solely on outside assistance. By training trainers within the services, the fire departments are able to sustain their capacity and grow their capabilities faster than organizations that lack internal trainers. Africa Fire Mission believes that assisting in the development and capacity building of fire service across the continent of Africa will lead to a safer and higher quality of life for the people of Africa by reducing the risk of losing homes, property and lives to uncontrolled fire.
