Re: SRB Accreditation & Communique updates

You logic is again flawed. Just because the SES are providing Primary GLR in some places does not mean they can provide it everywhere. Getting back to my original point, "often the SES cannot provide 'RCR' (GLR) due to either there being no SES unit, or if there is a flood/storm unit, no capacity o...
