FaHCSIA’s Procedures Of Snake Sighting On Grounds

By johnboy - 8 March 2009 64

A keen eyed reader has snapped this lovely piece of work from FaHCSIA. Apparently the snakes are partial to basking in their courtyards.

Any guesses as to how many people met for how many hours to produce this marvel? And is the second arrow to the contacts box correct use of a flow chart?

If you see little gems like this be sure to send them in to images@the-riotact.com

I love how the title melodramatically bellows: SNAKE SIGHTED!

yet later on the victim is exhorted to: Please remain calm …

*guffaw*

I also love the sequence:

1. Report the snake.
2. Locate a first aid officer.
3. Dial 000.

I assume the first aid officer is for the snake. They are protected you know.

By the way, acronyms are great if you know what the words are. Pardon my iggerance but what does FaHCSIA refer to. Fellowship of the Holy Catholic Snake Invasion of Australia. perhaps?

I think we should go on a snake spotting tour of the grounds … unless they’ve made it into the ceiling already.

haha thats a classic.. i wonder if they will all get a few days of snake sighting training with a certificate to add to their resume.

What about an emergency mongoose?

Maybe they should have a shovel in a glass case with the wording:

IN CASE OF SNAKES BREAK GLASS.

It would also benefit from the careful use of some Clip Art pictures.

Preferably of a snake that you wouldn’t actually encounter in Canberra unless it escaped from a collector, like a Cobra.

I’m guessing one person met to produce this marvel. And they were told to do it at very short notice by their boss and really had no idea what they were trying to produce.

What’s the betting, PowerPoint or Visio?

As there are no decision points, it is a completely useless use of a flowchart. It needs some questions.

– Did the snake see you? Yes/No

– Have you been bitten? Yes/No

– Do you have access to a phone? Yes/No

I like the arbitrary use of capitals.

You missed “Are you dead? Yes/No” (if yes, please disregard this flowchart)

I suppose it gives them something to do between tea breaks and filling out the footy tips.

There is a sign near HMAS Haman that says ‘Beware of snakes’.

Granny 3:22 pm 08 Mar 09

I think there needs to be some maybe options as well.

How do you know for sure that the snake saw you? Shouldn’t there be some kind of test? How do you know you’ve been bitten? What should you do if you only might’ve been?

Tophole capital Usage.

Exceptionally good For People who should Know better.

The large print is a nice touch, in case there’s any difficulty spelling out the words.
