Update on Canada Wildfires

Since our previous article covering the Canadian wildfires, the situation has changed, however, fires continue to rage through the country.

Due to the magnitude and the seemingly unstoppable nature of the Canadian wildfires, first reported over a month ago, the situation has since garnered world attention.

Fires have crawled across Ontario, leaving hundreds of thousands evacuated from their homes and calling attention to some of the devastating impacts caused by recent changes in the climate. Skies are painted orange across the North of the United States, and wildfires continue to shift and move around. The current wildfire period has been confirmed to be the worst of all time in the history of Canada.

The extent of the damages and current wildfire situation can be found through the interactive map available on the official Canadian Wildland Fire Information site, found here.

Impact on Africa

Recently, we reported on Africa honoring previous agreements with Canada, sending over teams of Fire and Safety experts and Firefighters, to assist in combatting the wildfires. Over 200 troopers geared up and took to Alberta to battle the flames and reinforce the morale of the firefighters already stationed in the area.

Reportedly, the firefighting teams begin each day with a dance native to South Africa, preparing them for the trials and tribulations ahead.

Though fires continue to rage, firefighting teams continue to combat the situation, with the worst heatwaves now expected to have passed, and eyes celebrating the cooperative culture of South Africa’s firefighting force.
