We'd have two very knackered players and a lot of entertained spectators in our brigade. Good idea though!

Recruitment drive suggestion no 4; play BA soccer along the main street.

Um I thinks it would require most of the BA operators in the group.

So does the game last 1 tank of air per player.

OHS forms where not needed as it was a friendly game,now come on you can only do so much of the real training why not make it fun and get members involved..The sad part about training is that some people will just not give it ago...OHSW has killed all the fun of training.(no cars or ppe or fence) where hurt in our training session but all members worked well as a team and did a great fun night.not sure who won as I was called away....

OH&S may have "killed all the fun", but your lucky no one went down with heat stress.. (I can see BA, with PBI, Flashoods and structural helmets being worn by some operators)..  Also playing on a non sealed, wet surface.. What if someone went arse up and landed on their back with a set on ?


But you seem to be an educated person so i'm sure you don't need me telling you all the ' What Ifs ' ...

We sure do need to have a little fun, but within parameters. It helps with the team spirit and bonding thing.

Now c'mon..  I do understand what you are saying, but I dont think Structural Fire fighting equipment was being used at its best in this situation..

But heck, thats my view.. Play all the outdoor sports you want in fire fighting gear if you like.. Like I said don't let one view on a forum stop you.. Im just giving my personal views on the use of Structural turnout gear being used in such a situation.. We have had enough difficulty getting PBI and being allowed to wear it at structural fires, yet alone playing a soccer game in it..

There was a red helmet there so obviously some people don't mind..

anyway.. moving on.

Looks like a lot of fun.

Although i do find it concerning some members chose to wear there PBI & Flashhoods.  But its there choice.

Its all fun,and that is what is needed in training,sure we need to make sure that we do it by the bible but now and then its good to have a little fun and to be part of a team working in a differant area.We are human and its time that we started to enjoy training and all that is intended in a session..On the night it was cold as there was a nice rain storm on its way....

Most brigades don't have access to a structure to burn down, and hence can't test out how far they can push themselves, while dressed in PBI Gold....

Having some activity, where crews work physically hard, while dressed in their PBI Gold, might give them an idea of how hot they get, while working hard....

I'd hate to have my crews go out, to a going structure fire, dressed in PBI Gold for the first time...... (since not everyone who has done a BA Course, has done it in PBI Gold)

There are three types of people in the world.  Those that watch things happen, those who make things happen, and those who wonder what happened.

Maybe I need to be a little less anal retentive when it comes to protocol.. But you have to understand I think you would be on your own if a firefighter went down with heat stress and it was found he/she was playing soccer in PBI, BA, Flashood and a structural firefighting helmet.. Again, just going back on OH&S..


All this after it was such a battle for some brigades just to get the stuff in the first place..

But, what ever floats your boat..  :-)
