You go out on the fire boat "Gallantry" one day during recruit course, just a cruise in the Port river and they squirt some water.

Yes, there is some water training during the recruit course but it dosen't involve the marine vessel, it involves the STAR group Police officers........ well at least it did, I don't know about now  :-o .... LOL  :-P

Everyone noticed their is a new PID plus MFS took delivery of 5 new pumpers so they should have some available for training. I guess it comes back to funding, the number of retirements and trainers available.

Pretty sure they had trucks available for training before the arrival of the new appliances. Its not the first drill squad they have ever run...

The Pumpers were funded from previous budgets - and they, I believe, have been delivered much later than originally planned.

'They' are the voices in his head. T.M. 33B.
Nothing has been set as yet. the real 'They' are hoping to get something happening soon. The recruit training guys still don't know anything as yet.

Although it could be possible the MFS could recruit later in the year they usually update the website advising they are recruiting in the near future a month or two before hand so unless they update it over the next couple of weeks it would make sense they update the website in September for applications in January/ February, as that's what they have previously done anyway.
