Kenya. Annual general meeting and conference 2021

Heads of Fire Brigades from 2/3 of local governments of Kenya gathered this Friday and Saturday for the second conference of Chief Fire Officers Association, Kenya, supported by Polish Center for International Aid. This was a great opportunity to meet and confer with Fire Chiefs from all over Kenya, from Marsabit in the North to Narok in the South and from Kilifi on the Coast of the Indian Ocean to Bungoma on the Ugandan border.


First day (Friday) focused on a comprehensive update on PCPM’s flagship Fire Brigade Training & Equipment Support Project, which included presentation on „Made in Kenya” Fire Engine, layout of a fire station for subcounties, as well as vocational training update. Prototype of „Made in Kenya” Fire Engine, sponsored by Polish Aid, was presented, with a thorough walkthrough. The second day focused on internal operations of Kenya’s Fire Brigades and its industry body, the CFOA-K, including Standard Operating Procedures.

We are much grateful to Polish Aid for sponsoring this event and to the representatives of the Polish Embassy and County Government of Kiambu for attending the opening ceromony.
