So now thewhiteknight thinks there might be a COMBINATION of the RFS/VRA but not a merger - etc.
The earlier comment - in part "that's as far as it goes at the moment and into the immediate future", was a statement about the now and next 6 -12 months ("immediate future).
The later comment "Agreed, although I think that any combination might be RFS/VRA. The SES tends to want to stand alone and too a point that is legislatively driven as any combined RFS/SES unit would have difficulty in complying with both the requirements of the RFS and SES Acts." was in general agreement with Ramblers comment about 'probable' greater involvement in the longer term (ie not 'the immediate future). By 'combination' I'm thinking of wider options, one might be as a joint service delivery model perhaps similar how under 'CFR' other services provide the response on behalf of another agency. If the RFS for example responds in a RFS vehicle from a RFS station for CFR on behalf of NSWA, could something similar be viable for GLR on behalf of the VRA? (SRB approved of course).
