Re: SRB Accreditation & Communique updates

The document should be titled the "NSW Police Force State Rescue Policy". The phrase "NSW Police Force" is rampant throughout the document to the extent of nausea. This is a policy purely to re-assert Police control over rescue in NSW. What a deplorable "policy" document. The control culture within...

Hey Duck you and I have had numerous conversations about the frustrations of the ambos not responding us at the time of call or "being on scene requesting fire" at time critical incidents.

Re: Fire Services and Medical First Response

Mattfirey My responses in red I'll make it easy for you .(thanks :lol: ) This is a public forum about emergencies, and not specifically a firie forum or for that matter a forum for emergency services personnel specifically.

Re: Fire Services and Medical First Response

Alfie where do you get this from ? is it personal opinion, is it talk wherever you hang out or is it just you trying to bait firies ? ;) oh and yes I do take it as an insult you calling me and my workmates aloof.

Re: Fire Services and Medical First Response

Alfie "assist ambos" and fire protection are a very complex subject not simply "you give some first aid at a fire therefore you may as well do it everywhere. The population and structures in NSW are growing at a fast rate but is FRNSW ? Simply the reason fire percentages are low is because when ther...

Re: Fire Services and Medical First Response

Alfie this is an industrial issue.. not just whether or not we want to assist the ambos. While not wanting\hoping to sound short with you..i don't know who you are or why you want to know..apart from this also being a public forum. It is a pretty complex issue which isn't as simple as just assisting...
