USAR...lolol....in fact rofpmsl. How did we ever exist without USAR

As for the untrained, well...I'm assuming there are still trucks on the run in all those towns, still attending non flood jobs, the RCRs, the Alarm calls, the fires, the cat rescues, still doing the usual hash and trash stuff....ahh but of course, one needs to be a tunnel rat to walk into an underground carpark, I forgot.

Isn't it pretty basic thinking that people trained to mitigate a given hazard are the ones that should deal with it? No point sending a bunch of BF1 trained vollo's North to do anything much more than fill sandbags. As Pumprescue has said, it's not like the CFS can spare many people anyway without impacting our own day to day responses.

so if there is always this great skills shortage then why won't CFS train us.......

Skills shortage in terms of USAR? The CFS still treat the use of basic firefighting respiratory protection a "Specialisation", how do you expect them to train people in a real specialisation?

I would suggest training budget and core response types does not include flooding.

God forbid you try to ensure you send trained crew up as part of an Agency's response.

There is nothing stopping anyone signing up at http://www.emergencyvolunteering.com.au/ and going up of their own accord.

6739264 that is true however you can't just go all willy nilly and head right over there you've got to wait for a phone call from one of the agencies coordinating the recovery/clean up effort amd they decide where you are placed

Congratulations to the Queensland and other members of the public volunteering to assist cleanup. Great to see local people helping each other and not wanting glory for doing it.
