Just a Quick question, what is the Standard SOP for the minimun age requirment for attending an rcr job.
have come across differnt veiws from differnt brigades.
My brigade will not let some one on the truck if they are under 18.
A friend is in a brigade that dosnt have this and also have a RCR trained member who is 17.
Also What are the rules for cutting glass. is a haulegine tool really an option?

It does make you wonder, with all the bad press about the cfs, why would any one put there hand up to voulenteer, (yes i know to help the community. but seriously what sort of nutters are we to do give something to the community when the government has forgotten a important fact. we cant afford to replace all vollies with paid staff..... whats that advert over 50% of australians volunteer.... i volunteer for differnt organisations to repay what has been done for me and in the hopes some one will be there when i need help again. We all want things for free but the government have to wath they dont get what they wish for....

Just quickly, still relatively new, but if you go for a bush fire wether first response or strike team, your meant to wear PBI right? so what happens if that bush fire causes a house to go up, as does happen, would you just do your thing staying out of the house or maybe call in an appliance with people wearing level 3 or gold? also how do you tell if your pants and boots are level 1, 2, or 3? recently i read something about having liners in pants??? and what is the difference between rural and structural boots? sorry for my ignorance/
