Some of the comments on this topic are getting weird.

From the comment section of the AUSTRALIAN EMERGENCY LAW by Michael Eburn, PhD and Barrister.

Wouldn’t FRNSW incidents like: rescuing children from a burning building, or rescuing children trapped in a car, little Jonny’s finger stuck in bath plug be considered child related employment?
Maybe Ambulance Rescue is needed back in Sydney and other areas to cover the working with children incidents.

Michael Eburn explained the breakdown of the intent of the WWC requirement very well.

Fire services don't transport kids, nor provide health care services, interactions we do have are minimal, educational with usually teacher supervision or social with parent/adult supervision.

There seems a few people who don't read it entirely, or extrapolate components of it for stupid reasons.

....and any thought of ASNSW ramping up rescue in Sydney is a last century joke.
