How about rationalising the multiple duplicit agencies and silos we have responding to civil rescue emergencies...and maybe... increasing the professional response footprint to deliver required emergency services.
'the multiple duplicit agencies and silos' - a big call saying there are multiple deceitful organisations. What evidence do you have? Should the said agencies get even more professional in the duplicity and deceit?
You village idiot Two Hats..

lets keep it simple for you..
duplicity
[doo-plis-i-tee, dyoo-]

deceitfulness in speech or conduct, as by speaking or acting in two different ways to different people concerning the same matter; double-dealing.
The government and Commissioners want to keep a cheap/free workforce in an increasing demand for services, they play the game differently for compassion. Rescue services in NSW has been a basket case of silos, political and personal ego's for decades. No one wants to cull that into an efficient org that employs, rewards and delivers.

If you wish to extrapolate to different meanings/contexts to suit your namesake..do it elsewhere.

The reality is that no Government will fund a paid rescue service everywhere in NSW regardless of what uniform they wear, so there will always be a reliance on volunteers (regardless of what uniform they wear) to provide this in some areas of the State, at least in most of our lifetimes. Accept it and move on.

No one is asking or expecting a fully paid rescue service coverage for NSW. There maybe opportunity for upgrading service provision where built environments and community risks increase, partial funding gets provided by emergency service levies in different ways across States where its required.

As has been seen in NSW, QLD and Victoria...there may be times where the goodwill of volunteers cannot meet increasing service provision. Part time/paid service delivery occurs and in time even becomes fulltime day supported by part time or volunteer capability or 24/7 fulltime.

What is ridiculous is where there is part or fulltime service..and it is not fully utilised due to old patch mentality services retaining single risk response, like RCR to volunteer response.

How about we use the paid services where they are already in place instead of relying on volunteers

and

How about not diluting the volunteer services by having multiple services in the same area

call me crazy :lol:

I see RFS Mungindi are still showing secondary, ... even with SES withdrawing their application for primary for Mungindi

Does that mean 381 FRNSW Moree are primary for Mungindi?

Moree to Mungindi is 123km..St George to Mungindi is 119km.
QFES St George auxilliary (retained) firefighters are RCR , vert rescue/SW L1 trained and equipped. Every urban fire appliance staffed across QLD by permanents or auxilliary (retained) are similarly equipped.

With the current discussion in regard to the implementation of RCR in NSW,... I've heard it said that the Captain of Boggabilla RFS isn't keen on taking it up,(which is fair enough) and that QFES Goondiwindi recently came across the border to a MVAPT, a distance of only about 10 klms
Not sure on the NSW SRB thoughts on that becoming a standing arrangement.
