I think "Zippy" has put in the most sensible post so far!
If the footage taken from a camera is being used for internal Fire Service use only,(e.g. training or record keeping) then really, where is the issue?

I don't agree with footage from incidents going on Youtube or being supplied to the media, UNLESS sanctioned by the Fire Service as public interest or whatever.

Also, if a member of another service has an issue and politely asks that they not be recorded, then turn it off!(no big deal really)
I know that most reasonable Emergency Service personnel I work with from other agencies wouldn't have an issue, as you can be very easily filmed at incidents by media agencies anyhow!

I wonder sometimes if those that have a big issue with being filmed, lack confidence in doing their job correctly or are worried about being seen in the wrong P.P.E. etc.
Do the right thing, and there won't be an issue, and if you make a stuff up then at least you have something to watch and learn from.(remember...TRAINING USE)

Cheers, Mat

Any photos taken by a CFS Member are subject to CFS SOP 12.2 :wink:

Now unless your brigade allows you to take photos on your personal camera, you cant release it to a third party without CEO consent.

I would believe the people who are wanting to use these camera's only want to use them for internal brigade use for training purposes and debriefs of some sort.

Agreed.

well this thread certainly turned into a bit of a joke....  :roll:


.....and some of you CFS volunteers seem to have issues relating to not being taken seriously as professionals!!  turn it up!!

fair call re: use for training - as long as thats what happens with it.  At the end of the day - who can stop someone putting something on youtube??

we all know how it works with government agencies - no-one will have an issue with it until it gets used as evidence because someone dumps some pics or video into the public domain!  it only takes one disgruntled journalist to blow something out of context!  take Channel 7 for example - who up until 12 months ago had a massive vendetta against SAPOL - reporting anything and everything negative they could aim a camera at.

on that happy note - I leave my last post on this thread.......  

 - wanna look like a t@sser? - attach a camera to your head and go to work!    :evil:

As stated every Brigade takes pics at sceens.after all if its stopped.then what would Promotions Unit Photo Gallery have to post :-D

Also stated..what is filmed is the main question...I for one wouldnt like to see closeups of MVAs..as other countrys view on TV News reports.

Common sence is the call of the day..use it for good or abuse it, its your call.

An interesting area. I used a voice recorder at any incidents i attended as a member of an IMT for my own personal Rs covering. I also took my own notes. I burnt the recording to a CD and filed it. The advise i was given with this was that i could use it for my own personal use, to make extra notes from etc, but it would not be admissable in court unless i specifically stated to a person whom i may interview or discuss plans with was informed of the fact the discussion was being recorded. It was interesting listening back to the incident and being able to review the decisions made and how i performed and how i could do better next time. So if this was the intention of a helmet cam i think it is a great idea if used appropriatley.

Isn't time lapse usually used for things that are happening slowly? :P

Something about Seafood not having much of a primary response area and not getting to any jobs before MFS may have *something* to do with it...

Go look on Youtube Davi. There is plenty of vision from decent jobs that involve the beast. Probably going to be better than most of the jobs we get over here anyway :)

IC/Manager would definately have that power mate. - Some people might not like to be filmed (meaning members of other agencies).. It could be quite intimidating / 'off putting' to try and do your job with a camera lens in your face..
well.... actually, an ambo (of any rank) would not have the power to 'order' you (a firefighter) to turn it off, or remove it. Im sure if they asked nicely though ;)

Would be interesting if you filmed a SAPOL STAR squad officer at a land search tasking...from my limited knowledge they do not like their faces in pictures.

no -an ambo couldn't legally tell you to turn it off, but if it got knocked and broken - I don't know if you'd have any recourse!!

as for starry's - probably same boat as the Spooks that were floating around when Mercury 05 was on!
