CAFSA is excited to announce its current two part mission to Penco, Chile. Stage one of the mission involved the donation of two fire "pumper" trucks and a large variety of firefighting equipment. The sea container contained an estimated load of fourteen tonnes. The vehicles and equipment where sent to Penco Fire Services station one and station three. The Canadian ambassador to Chile, Mrs. Sarah Smith, was in attendance during the delivery of this large donation. Part one of the Penco mission was completed in December 2011.
The second part of the Penco mission will occur in April/May 2012. This portion of the mission will include training on the already delivered apparatus and the donation and training of a ladder truck.
