Almost 300 firefighters from South Africa touched down in Edmonton over the weekend to lend a hard against the Fort Mac fires, and Canadians everywhere are falling in love with them. The first thing they do…. break into traditional song and dance at the airport.
Khomt Alucie, one of the firefighters, said the group has only known each other for a day and singing is how they bond.
“It gives us moral courage, it gives us teamwork,” she said. “If we become tired in the fire we sing.
“It’s not something you practice, it’s in the soul.”
