    when you're the last kid to be picked(in this case not even asked) to play you got to figure your contribution means little to the overall game plan.

    I spent 11 years fighting forest fires and here are some facts:
    To fight forest fires you must be trained and certified and pass a nationally certified fitness test. Structural fires and forest fires are very different and require separate skills. Foreign fire fighters must meet international standards and are provided with additional training and orientation upon arrival. National and international agreements are in place to share manpower and equipment. Ontario often sends personnel and equipment across Canada and to the USA. This spring crews went to Alberta.

    There was a time when able-bodied men in Ontario could be conscripted into fighting fires but that is no longer the case.

    It’s my understanding that Ontario has a shortfall of about 40 crews this year. Young people have other things to do I suppose, but I heard a story that some kids don’t want to do it because there’s no wifi in the woods.

    As far as the city fire fighters wanting to help, Quebec didn’t have the resources to train and certify them due to sudden emergency. After this season ends, I can foresee a push to train interested people.

    Which fires/where? Since an open fire ban has been in place in Ontario for several weeks, most fires have been lightning caused.

    Itís my understanding that Ontario has a shortfall of about 40 crews this year. Young people have other things to do I suppose, but I heard a story that some kids donít want to do it because thereís no wifi in the woods.

    As far as the city fire fighters wanting to help, Quebec didnít have the resources to train and certify them due to sudden emergency. After this season ends, I can foresee a push to train interested people.
    Thanks for your expertise.

    When they mention they have able body's im sure they would be qualified. It wouldn't be the first time that Quebec sent a team to battle Forrest fires. Is that team on the ground? Or did foreign workers come before their own teams with experience?

    This retired guy had a team together but is not needed he and they have the experience, are still able and don't even want the Frontline. But it would be boots on the ground. We took retired nurses back in an emergency. And now those fighting the fires are loosing thier own homes in these areas they wanted to help.

    Exactly. If they can't pass the PreFit, which includes running laps with a 70 pound hose pack on their back, we don't need them. Enough white helmets already.
