I agree with your sentiment SydneyComms, but know of 2 incidents in the last year or so that happened outside a fire station and the staff did not assist as it was "not their job" and "would interrupt gym time"!! Its probably easier to reform and improve the ambulance service than try to improve that woefulsydneycomms wrote:Can't happen fast enough for my liking.
Most choking patients or cardiac arrest patients near a fire station would probably agree with me.... several patients a day could have potentially life saving faster intervention just in the GSA.
Dare I say it.... the Union is probably a bit out of touch with what's reasonable in this case.
If it happened in front of an on duty crew you imagine they would stop and help - what's being proposed isn't much different.
Option 1 - stay on station
Option 2 - go and help someone nearby with a life threatening condition that you can do something meaningful about.
No brainer to my mind.
