New Hazmat Guides Distributed
« Reply #1 on: January 01, 2005, 09:43:23 PM »
So does anybody know if CFS Brigades have had these distributed? We received one per appliance when the last one was released but I haven't seen this update yet.  :roll: I've seen plenty of the old old ones in appliances (pre 1997).

HI Kat! - Welcome to the forum.

I have spoken to Wayne Atkins (Senior State Training Officer CFS) he assured me that CFS has ordered them. Don't know anything about delivery time but if we hear anything we will post an update.

Yes ours arrived last week. Looks like one per Brigade rather than one per appliance. It's usurped it's predecessor in the yellow pocket!

THE NEWEST VERSION of the ERG BOOK
« Reply #7 on: March 11, 2005, 01:00:24 AM »
I found the latest version of the ERG BOOK that was given out to HAZMAT Brigades is available in PDF form,,Having installed it on our station computer it is of great backup importance,logistically and also as we have 2 units,one hazmayt the other RCR,,one book only was constricting. Pt Wakefield Brigade is using this form under the canopy of logistics,and have had many inquiries from other groups that think this is the way of the future,as it stops the tying up of the radio operator in the trucks at a scene,,also if the truck without the book arrives on the scene and has to radio SOC for info before proceeding at a scene,,cheers this is a great communication tool for brigade ideas information swapping :P
