Once again, Da Daghay Development Corporation, the development arm of Ta’an Kwäch’än Council, is gearing up for the summer fire season. About 60 people participated in our Beat the Heat Bootcamp at the end of April. The eight-day Beat the Heat Bootcamp provides the necessary training for new recruits to be certified as initial attack fire fighters. Last year’s Beat the Heat Bootcamp provided training and employment opportunities to over 20 new recruits from across the Yukon. Da Daghay Development Corporation’s goal is to be the number one supplier for training and certification within this industry in the north. Deputy Chief Michelle Telep was on hand to congratulate this year’s graduates.
