Re: Elitists

Sort of right on some points, chardonnay Bob nearly had a chesty when the Coroner put his recommendations forward, they already had something similar in the pipeline that they didn't want to know about blinded by the $ sign undoubtedly, so the Coroners was a non starter.

Re: Control Room Antics

Easy solution: remove the fire fighters from doing the comms work and employ civilians.... put the fire fighters back out to fighting fires Reading the articles x 2 that is the proposal.

Re: Control Room Antics

Bit picky considering that's not what it was about, check line 5 of the post !! Didn't chase it up initially as it's available to all if they want look for themselves. Perm Stns = 9 with 11 frontline appliances with 23 other types, probably spares, officers transport etc. RFS Stns = 8 with 52 units ...

Re: Elitists

Never went to the other forum, this one had BS to spare but that one left it in it's wake. No. it wasn't the RFS so much but they do seem to lack any "structured disicpline" etc. and the hirearchy appear to be a bit reticent to pull people up and take it further unlike FR and your mob that appear to...

Re: Gordon f/s closure

Thanks to ...
