4th World Firefighters Games; Edmonton, Canada
28 July to 3 August 1996

Edmonton's organisers and 2,000 volunteers were meticulous in their efforts to ensure the events were well conducted and consequently athletes and visitors alike enjoyed the competition. Participants were also to discover that the people of Edmonton were exceptionally hospitable and helpful to their international visitors. Of particular interest was the West Edmonton Mall, the world's largest shopping and entertainment complex under the one roof - a shopper's fantasy!
