How much does it cost every time an appliance turns out..... more to the point how much does it cost when 2 trucks turn out for what was requested as a low priority attendance for a fluid spill??????

Very little at all I'd suggest.  To the MFS or CFS at any rate. 
Wages (if applicable) were being paid anyway (except retained). 
The trucks need a run every now & then anyway.
Their occupants (paid or unpaid) need a little activity now & then to maintain interest. :-D
Total cost to The Services - not much more than a few litres of diesel.
(cost to volunteers is not a political or management concern.)
Therefore an extra 50,000km across the fleet ain't gunna make a flea-bite difference
to affordability of big ticket PPE, vehicles, buildings & etc in a $130M combined
budget (+/- $20M or so).

Regarding the original topic - a whinge about MFS comms, at least they are unlikely
to cop the hiding issued yesterday by the NSW coroner to NSW ambulance comms...
There may be other 'issues' at Wakefield St, but refusal to accept or pass on a call
due to lack of a street address isn't one of them. Not that we know about anyway!!  :-D

very true - but no fire comms has gone down the line of putting in staff who have never worked in frontline operations.....and in fact couldn't actually get a frontline job secondary to lack of practical intelligence coupled with a need to undertake their duties in a primate fashion with unquestioning loyalty to the queen..........

But back to the original comment re NSW cokkup.....if you lined up 50 % of the staff who work on the top floor of 216 (managers included) and this collosal fookup from NSW - you'd have a job telling them apart!

 In fact - i was recently informed of a company who has approached the SA government and has offered to clone such EOC staff so that consistency between all staff can have minimal variances - thus resulting in a system which is consistent and will ALWAYS  follow the sytems and protocols to a TEE..........


.........faaaaaaaark!

Why would that be a Bad Thing [TM] Boredy?
Works for telcos & banks.  Could even save the govt a bob or two. 
Move the whole shebang to Mumbai or Manila. Operators could save the
SA public money by interspersing their mundane ambulance & fire
dispatch calls with credit card enquiries & ISP password resets. 
Gotta be good for the state, what ?  :evil:

The scary thing is that there are probably several layers of decision
makers who actually believe this...  :-o

Sadly more wishful thinking! However sounds like some within SAFECOM & CFS HQ are plotting & planning & SES RCR units may not get a choice :-(
But until that happens, why not leave sleeping dogs lay?

chook thats the third troll post I've read in the first three posts i've read tonight....maybe we can put it all in one new thread so the rest of us can ignore the  woe is us (well....not really one of us...) and we can get on with other important stuff without the paranoid scare mongering.....if you have proof, then name the company and the person....otherwise, maybe give the unfounded crap a rest hey

Not trolling crash - just relating what I was told. And this is not the first time I have heard this in the last 12 months just more detail. If I had the persons or company name then I would have sent them to David Place(not bothering to mention it here)! And continual references to "this unit is loosing this or that unit is closing etc" makes me get angry. Yep Darren I'm well aware of the response problems with some units in the Riverland - there are reasons. So as a forum recruit you don't like the "woe is us" when it doesn't adversly affect the fire services, fair enough. Then why do some fire services members consistently make adverse comments about us? - by the way I was one of us a short time ago. However your comments are valid, so I won't comment further. But here is a thought - you don't add a second level to your house, if the foundations are defective!  :wink:

  Yeah that's so unfair, i've reformed my ways...I no longer ask for Send Extra Sandwhich's, or can some get that Witch's hat to walk over there, or can someone ask the Secondary Electricity Supply to turn that light on... :-D :-D :-D :-D
