On February 5, the Canadian volunteer mission "Firefighters for help to Ukraine" came to Dnipro city. The delegation was led by Kevin Royle, President of the Canadian Volunteer Mission, which also included Andrew Boichenko and representatives of the Rotary Club.

The head of the mission united around the idea of helping Ukrainian fire brigade survivors of their indifferent colleagues, firefighting workers and patrons. In autumn of 2017, thanks to them, Ukraine received 8 tons of fire equipment on total value more than $ 2 million.

The purpose of the visit of the delegation is to collect information on the work of fire brigades from the Central and Eastern regions of Ukraine in order to form the necessary humanitarian assistance. At the same time, the mission helps not only the state units, but also actively supports the development of local fire brigades. Therefore, today's meeting was also attended by the heads of the Main Departments of SES in Donetsk and Kharkiv Oblasts.

Within the framework of the meeting, Canadian colleagues learned about the threats and urgent problems for the security of the Dnipropetrovsk and border regions, features of equipment and training of Ukrainian firefighters, development of local fire brigades and security centers.

In the autumn of 2019, it is planned to send a second humanitarian cargo for rescuers of Ukraine, but the final list of beneficiaries will be announced later. In addition, cooperation between two countries offers opportunities for sharing experiences, conducting joint exercises and developing economic relationship.

Within the framework of the intensive visit, the delegation visited the Main Department of the SES of Ukraine in Dnipropetrovsk Oblast, an exhibition of the fire and rescue service and the state fire department, and met the regional leadership in the premises of the Dnipropetrovsk Regional State Administration. Canadians also inspected the car fleet of rescuers during their visit to the technical service detachment. The International Fire Brigade Meeting ended with a visit to the Museum of Civil feat of the ATO.
