During the span of the contract, two independent companies provided their unique range of services to the Forest Fire Association Section 21 Company. Forest Air provided aerial firefighting services and EnviroNet Solutions provided ground-based integrated fire management.
The growth of the WoF Programme led the company’s auditors to recommend the formation of a group of companies, the FFA Group, to implement the Working on Fire Programme in the future. As a result, Forest Air and EnviroNet Solutions amalgamated into the newly formed group.
A company structure was formed comprising of FFA Holdings (Pty) Ltd as a holding company that legally owns all the shares in the companies that make up the FFA Group. Each of these companies was formed to fulfil a specific function within the FFA Group.
In 2014 the FFA Group rebranded to Kishugu Holdings (Pty) Ltd and currently operates with four subsidiaries, Kishugu Aviation (Pty) Ltd, Kishugu Fleet Solutions (Pty) Ltd, Kishugu Trianing (Pty) Ltd and Working on Fire (Pty) Ltd.
