Re: Southern Highlands

Will the 'Southern Highlands' SES be expanding their GLR/VR capability into Wollondilly? I wouldn't think so as I believe the Wollondilly Unit is quite small and wouldn't have the capability.

Re: SRB Accreditation & Communique updates

Its seems a strange decision from the SRB to grant VRA Murrurundi Vertical Accreditation after they lost GLR because of lack of numbers, it's normal to require more staff for VR. You would think so, but the SRB policy says minimum 2 operators for GLR and VR. It's how most of the remaining Ambulance...

Re: VRA is it really serving the people ?

The RFS are the Registered Training Organisation (RTO) for the VRA so I guess it's in his interest to suck up to Shane.

Re: SRB Accreditation & Communique updates

But Police are in control Alfie - it's enshrined in legislation. That said, I've never experienced Police trying to micro-manage agencies at a rescue.
