I tried to ease off the keyboard but it was already stuck to my gut.

The comment about not reading enough documents used by other services *was* tongue cheek...

I was trying to suggest that although the terms occasionally get a run, people need to stick to our SOP's and terminology so that they can communicate clearly with other people ;)

Same team!
To think they employed me as a drooling retard...

Irons? A & B sides? 2nd due appliances.....
hmmmmm  :lol:

A/B/C/D etc.. Works with sectorising structures no? Start at the front and work around in a clockwise direction.


Mmmm it may well be a good way of sectorising structures, and im well aware of what he was referring too. However this is definitely not a South Aussie way of speaking and probly not even aussie full stop [?]..

Just having a tease about all the 'yankeeisms' in there... few too many movies perhaps ;)

Sectorising a collapsed structure is used in 'USAR cat 1' course. Thus I believe, it is used for all wall markings of a USAR incident in South Australia.

I have not done the course for while, so it might have been modified. I think some of the sectorising is being introduced to some of the other SES courses.

Others will be able to confirm...so maybe will become part of the future classification of a structure.

What do people think?

sounds the go to me, although I agree with Gilly that I'd call 2nd alarm enroute for the same reasons he said.

Do you know if you guys use the system:

External: Side 1,2,3,4
Internal: A/B/C/D (quadrants) E (centre)

I checked my hand-written notes from the course several years ago...so it could have changed, but..yes, that is the system I have noted for USAR Structure markings...each zone is listed in a clockwise direction from the street address side.

Mmm, well if smoke was showing i would drop the box, an all hands on arrival would also bring on the extra engine, truck and rescue for RIT, i'd get a 1 1/2" pre connect going and make the 2nd due engine lay in a line of LDH from the hydrant.... oh hang on sorry wrong country, we don't have any of that and the 34 that is arriving 2nd probably has 2 lengths of 64.

Depending on the location might ask for a tanker.
