around the mt gambier district the local brigades that dual respond with MFS will be paged by MFS comms at the same time a MFS....

no other responses for LSE are meant to be paged to CFS brigades by MFS in that area

Why would you want them to contact SOCC and waste more time?  Wouldn't it be better if the call taker pages you, and if SAMFS are responding the wrong brigades, you get their database updated to be correct?

Recently we have had a lot of pages that have gone to the group officers but not the brigade.  Even though the pager message contains the brigade number. e.g. 5418.

All from MFS of course.

Dont know why this is though.  Comm centre error or GRN error?  Anyone else had this happen?

ya might not get the mount turning out to CFS area... but i know for a fact that an MFS skyjet (or was it the bronto... hmmm) attended the Blackwood Coldstore fire at CFS request, well after initial calls... there have also been various other times in history when MFS have supplied 'specialist' appliances to CFS.

Have heard from a few different peeps around the traps lately that MFS be fulltime or retained can now travel up to 40km out of district for calls without getting special permission or something to that effect??? would have thought if you called them they would show anyhow but meh???????

We did a combined MFS/CFS training with Victor MFS. Yes, we asked the question and they said then that their responce area had been extended up to 40 km's

Can respond 30-40km around that mark beyond the boundary. Discretion is used though. For example if that MFS station is going to then have trouble covering their own area by doing that it may not happen. For example it would be silly to send Mt Gambier to a grass fire near Millicent and then respond a CFS appliance for COQ.

Not to mention at least 5 more appropriate appliances closer to that area.

So does that mean a CFS brigade can respond into an MFS brigades area and extinguish a fire without telling them?

Seems like an odd policy to have.


Just to point out i have nothing against the MFS just trying to make sense of what seems to be a very odd policy!

No the CFS cant respond to a fire in MFS area and extinguish it and not tell anyone that would be like stealing your big brothers girlfriend lol. Thats just the rules. I dont make em I`m just the messenger.

Isn't that more like saying the CFS can extinguish a fire in MFS area without getting permission from Euan first?  I see it as a good thing, not a threat...

We were bringing our 24P back from NE Isuzu one day and happened upon a VA outside Mitsubishi's at Tonsley the copper asked if we could help we made sure HQ was informed and that mets were responded, needless to say when they rocked up we got a bit of a look so we buggered off and left it in their hands. :-D

That happens and Mets dont mind of course, as long as you let them know. Have heard Burnside and Salisbury do it quite a few times.
