Re: Fire Services and Medical First Response

Structure fires are the core business of FRNSW but it is only ever going to hover in single percentage figures. You need to either welcome new business or enhance existing business if only at the very least for job security. Wasn't this the reason behind the "Fire Plus Rescue" re-brand? To reflect ...

Re: Police State???

Re: Tathra report released to public

Why the RFS wants to spend money developing their own application when a suitable product already exists, I don't know. How about the fact that BART costs $150 for 10 members + $20 per additional member per year? With 2,000 brigades and supposedly 70,000+ members that adds up to a lot of recurrent ...

Re: RFS and Rescue

In other news FRNSW has to rent a ladder platform from the MFB

RCR accreditation isn't just for RFS. Any agency could apply for it if they (and the LRC) feel the need exists.
