UP TO 20 PEOPLE MISSING NEAR GRANITE ISLAND ALL BOATS AND CREWS REQUIRED URGENT VMR 521



Nice to see it took 6 incidents for south coast SES to call in some assistance with storm damage albiet from yankalilla.

5 jobs on the go and then they get this

1908073 13:39:32 02-07-07 MFS: DAILY INC. NO. 44 - 02/07/07 13:39,RESPOND COLLAPSED BUILD,FOSTER PL,GOOLWA, MAP 307 L 6 ,,GARDEN SHED ABOUT TO BLOW INTO NEXT DOOR NEIGHBOUR HOUSE. MRS LEWIS 8555**** P2,79550 73229*CFSRES

Only 300metres from our station.

Yes i realise storm damage isn't our primary job but with this many calls shouldn't they be passing some of these jobs onto CFS?

SES don't think like a fire service.......They run job boards which fill up and they will work all night finishing all the jobs and clearing the board.

Fire Services call in resources until each job has been resourced.....

20:03:56 02-07-07 MENG: PLS BE AWRAE THAT MFS MAY NOT BE ON ALERTS CALLS. BRIGADES WILL HAVE TO TAKE DETAILS AND CALL MFS ON 84129007 TO ACTIVATE PAGERS. CFS COMMS MANAGER IS AWARE. CRNG COMMS OFFICER. 2/07/2007 8:03:35 PM

Seems like a big step backwards.  Hope only a brief glitch in the new system.

The first emergency page from Adelaide Fire to Kalangadoo CFS even though they spelled wepar wrong it was a good message  :-) yes i did go to the incident but didnt get off the truck cause someone was needed for spotlighting to see if the driver was hiding in the paddock somewhere

. . . . it was a good message  :-) . . . .

What exactly consitutes a bad message? 

The poor comms brigade took five mintues to figure out which brigades had been paged (same message sent to a couple of brigades). By the time they put their glasses on, fished out the MFS appliance code list and . . . BINGO!

Does anyone else think the page could be laid out a little more clearly, possibly:
1909366 MFS: KALANGADOO RESPOND Vehicle Accident, KALANGADOO. MEDHURST RD NEAR DRAINS WETAR RAPID NO 721372,5688 DAILY INC. NO. 42 - 17:54:12 08-07-07*CFSRES:

Actually littlejohn only Kalangadoo was dispatched along with SAAS NG81 & MG81 but yeah i agree that it could have been laid out abit more clearly however our brigade knows the back roads like Medhurst and Wepar very well  :-)

Actually littlejohn only Kalangadoo was dispatched . . . . . . 

Robert, Millicent Rescue was also paged (which created confusion with Comms, as the accident was in Penola's area), but they were stop-called enroute after your crew confirmed no entrapments.

I understand SAPOL spent some time trying to track down the driver, who was nowhere to be found.

Technically littlejohn Wepar Road is on the borderline between Millicent and Penola Rescue response areas so i can imagine it would have caused confusion, yes SAPOL did spend some time trying to locate the driver but couldnt find him

Yeah it sounds like it Dezza although we had 2 SAPOL cars on scene who did the land search with aid of local farmers on Medhurst Road i suggested to one of the SAPOL officers why not turn it into a land search or bring out the sniffer dogs :lol:
