Bonfires
« on: May 16, 2008, 10:03:44 AM »
Here is an example two neighbours are having bonfires adjacent to each other, and smoking each other out.

One calls the Fire Service because he does it to us and vice versa thinking it will get put out.The brigade gets turned out and further information suggests it is a neighbours dispute.
On arrival and investigation by the OIC both parties have a bonfire for personal comfort, and the required 4 metre clearance and a hose nearby.

What action would YOU take?

Or just put both heaps out so they won't be able to light them till next year :-D

If it's outside the fire season, suggest they grow up and return to station

wow-  how did we ever survive in this world before cowboy firey's existed who would put out a fire simply because someone lit it??

ever consider the remote possibility that some people in this world are not stupid simply because they havent done a firefighting course??`

You serious?  One half dont know anything about fires and the other half still think the CFS is a paid service  :lol: :lol:

Just cos you have done a firefighting course doesnt make you smart either!

Call the EPA and the local council and leave them to sort it out,better still send them a "account" for wasting the brigade's time...

a typically insular view of the world.....

it's like me thinking that all old people are sick because 75% of what I see at work is old people....

..or thinking that people in certain suburbs are all of low intelligence because I picked up 5 people in the same suburb who didn't have enough brain power between them to rub two sticks together.....



it'd be interesting to meet you...and see how long it takes you to insult my intelligence....
