NEW 34P APPLIANCE BEING DELIVERED NEXT MONDAY NIGHT AT 1900.CREW WILL BE REQUIRED FOR APPLIANCE FAMILIARISATION. STRATH CAPTAIN - CFS Strathalbyn Info

Good luck to Strath for having a very modern fleet but i would really like the people who allocate vehicles explain why some brigades can have 2 new 34P's when there are other brigades like ours that have a very tired 24P which is our frontline urban and RCR appliance and be told we have to have it until its 20-25 years old.

Seriously, anyone out there who can explain how this works?? one minute we are told our 24P is past the age limit for refurbishment but there are other 24P's of the same age going for refurbishment.

I wouldn't have thought any issue involving volunteers deserves a pager message like that.

The problem is a capacitor in the Fire Station Interface box..... causes the message to be sent, but they don't actually have a power failure.

Relatively easy job for a tech to fix.....

Not exactly, they were responding to the vehicle fire but weren't required so they were responded to the shed fire but had a delayed response because they were on the highway heading towards Hewett. Hewett is on the opposite side of Gawler to Gawler South  :-)

thats what i meant, they shouldn't think that they are going to always get back up from mfs, those who assume normally get into trouble.

I wouldn't have thought any issue involving volunteers deserves a pager message like that.

My first response would have been throwing my pager at the LT3's head, followed by my crew bag, with my letter of "get f***ed and jam it" in there. I surely hope this is being dealt with appropriately.


Totaly uncalled for, especially in areas where they are REALLY struggling for volunteers. Maybe it was an outgoing LT with some sour grapes?

I thought they were going to fix the way the pager mesages fill up with all that sort of crap: "== Alarm level updated to 2 == Alarm level updated to 3 == Alarm level updated to 4 =="?

Probably nothing sinister, just a service maybe?
Treat everyone as if they are an idiot, until they prove you otherwise.
