Ambos go from green to blue

By johnboy 19 January 2009 23

Word reaches me that the ACT Ambulance Service is changing their uniforms from hospitally green to emergency blue.

Theories surrounding the rationale for the move include:

    1. The rise in global military activity has made green dyes prohibitively expensive.
    2. The powers that be are looking for something to do with their time and to be remembered for.
    3. They want to keep in step with NSW.

Your thoughts?

Didn’t they only change from blue to green a few years ago?

Remember that in Australia generally, and ALWAYS in the ACT, we only follow what others in the big world are doing. Same with ambulance uniforms … we followed the International Standard of green (jump suits) from the standard shirt and trousers in generally white/blue. So, somewhere out there there has been a change. NOT in the LegArsemble. Fire trucks are the same … International Standards. Oh, and that is why there are bicycle lanes on main roads that then have their speed limit REDUCED … International Standards. The LegArse did not think of it. And (gosh the info just spews out!) that “yelllow more visible” thing sounds right, except that I read an NRMA crash study once that showed -to their surprise too – that bright reds, yellows and fluros where just as much crash magnets as other colors. Can’t count white ’cause there are more of them 🙂

Slightly off subject I know, but what was that Fire Engine under Lights and Siren on Belconnen Way this morning, sporting an ‘L’plate…

Was he holding up the traffic??
