Fire audit

4January 2005



The province paid a consultant more than $720,000 for work on a forest fire fighting option it ultimately rejected.

PriceWaterhouseCoopers was hired to look into contracting out fire services as part of a $1.1-million review of Saskatchewan’s forest firefighting aircraft fleet.

According to documents released by Crown Investments Corporation the province ultimately decided against outsourcing firefighting services.

The province instead decided to spend $42.4-million over four years to upgrade six aircraft as the first phase of a 10-year program to overhaul the entire 18-plane fleet.
