Anyone here been selected (or previously been through) ARFF recruitment.

I have a BiL who's been advised to complete a "Mechanical, Verbal, Talent Screener and Spatial" online test in addition to a Work Styles test.

Would welcome any info / tips that people might have to inform him of the process and assist.

Forum Stuff / Blocked from SAFF from mobile device
« on: September 04, 2012, 10:38:45 PM »
Just wondering if it s me or a current bug / glitch in the site.
I have been getting a "banned user" message on my mobile device (iphone) on various occasions over the last few weeks..???

It sometimes rectifies after several (read - numerous) attempts to get back in or I leave it for a period of times (usually 12 - 24 hours) before trying again.

I did note that when I tried to log into a PC at work shortly after I started a new job in late January that it detected that the IP address was a banned IP addressed and as such I cannot log in from work.

Just thought I would flag it for discussion - I am not aware of conducting myself in any way that would have seen me ACTUALLY banned from the site and am hoping that its just a tech glitch..


SA Firefighter General / GRN paging
« on: December 14, 2011, 02:14:28 PM »
Anyone able to shed light on the costs associated with setting up a GRN pager as well as monthly ongoing costs... (per unit would be helpful)

Am rather surprised by some figures that I have been provided - both set up and ongoing... (seemingly very excessive..?!?!)

Some additional insight would be appreciated...

SA Firefighter General / Linkq / quantum multimedia in receivership
« on: November 11, 2011, 08:07:58 PM »
Hi all,
Received information today that linkq have been placed into voluntary administration, being carried out by Deloittes Australia.
Have been led to believe that they are confirmed to trade until this Wednesday but no decision to trade beyond that has been made at this time - I have been led to believe that they may well be in a position to trade beyond that in the short term..

What impact might the above have on your agency and can anyone offer any other paging service (alerting / notification / messaging) that might be out there aside from GRN infrastructure / services...

Look forward to your feedback / ideas..!?!

SA Firefighter General / Colour Codes for Level of Preparedness
« on: October 31, 2009, 05:58:45 PM »
Hi all,
Rather than posting under the various agency headings (SES, CFS, DEH / Forestry and SAAS), I was hoping to get some collective information as to what the various colours for LOP are and how they relate to organisational capability, security of Operations Centres and resource preparedness etc etc...

I am also wondering what determines the LOP... AM guessing that present risk v's current workload v's available resources would have alot to do with this..??!!


SA Firefighter General / Employers and Interstate / Longer Term Deployment
« on: February 17, 2009, 09:24:28 AM »
Hi All,
I am curious/keen to get some feedback from people as to how they manage their employers when faced with a pending or actual long term deployment (i.e. 5 - 10 days).

  • Do people have Union Awards / EB's that accommodate emergency service leave..??
  • Do people have supportive employers that are happy to release staff as required..??
  • Do people just say "to hell with it" and tell the employer they are leaving..??
  • How do people that are self-employed manage the above..??
  • Do you get actual confirmation from the outset from your emergency service that you are required and thus can formally request leave from your employer or are you given a request for availability and can tentatively broach with the employer (with the view of seeking formal approval once formally requested..???

Finally, I am aware that SAFECOM present Employer Recognition certificates, however what do individual staff and brigades/units do to recognise employers..???

I welcome your personal experiences on this topic as well as any thoughts and ideas you have for your emergency service to better manage this area..


Country Fire Service / Medical / First Aid Services at Bushfires
« on: December 22, 2008, 06:14:12 AM »
Have decided to place this thread here as it is the opinion of firies that I mainly want and it is not limited to SAAS, but rather involves St John as well.

What are the thoughts and feelings of the services provided by both St John and SAAS at Staging Areas etc when large fires are on.

  • What services have you received / used and what it of used to you personally..??
  • Do you believe that St John provide any additional benefit / support to the other agencies already deployed to the incident..??
  • Do you believe that SAAS provide any additional benefit / support to the other agencies already deployed to the incident..??
  • What are some areas of improvement for the provision of medical / first aid services at these incidents..??

I would welcome constructive, useful discussion on this topic. Also, those of you involved with IMT arrangements, at what point do you consider / activate some form of Medical / First Aid response to large incidents such as bushfires..??
