Canadian Aid for Fire Services Abroad (CAFSA) is a Canadian, Alberta-based, volunteer, non-profit, international, and non-governmental humanitarian aid foundation.
The main objective of CAFSA is to collect used, but still viable, personal protective equipment and supplies from Canadian Fire Departments and redistribute that equipment to developing countries.
- To supply firefighters from less economically developed countries with personal protective equipment and supplies so that they can provide optimum emergency services to the citizens they serve.
- To assist these firefighters in their efforts to educate themselves on firefighting training and fire prevention.
- To increase their awareness on how to prevent job-related injury and illness, including the potential for industry-related cancer.
