So with fires all over Canberra today…

By johnboy 5 January 2013 25

Who decided we’d buck the national trend in keeping a middling fire danger rating?

And what sanction will they face?

Sorry for being late with a reply but I’ve spent the day on the fireground at Mt Gininni. Just back home.

I’m not into interagency rivalry as it’s completely counter productive and against everything I do.

Quips like ‘making sandwiches’ from knuckles would suggest that he is either a newbie or hasn’t done a hell of lot in his time in RFS. Fair enough, I have no problem with it, but comments like that are uncalled for. I have a heap of mates in RFS from all over Australia. Served on firegrounds all over Australia with them. I respect them and am humbled to call them my mates, or comrades in arms. Good blokes.

As I said before, someone in a position of power made the decision to stand the SES up on the previous days. It’s not some glory power trip, someone in a position of responsibility made this decision.

And as SES we comply.

Nothing more to say except to wonder if knuckles has been on the fireground down south yet?

And if he he has, then good work and keep it up. Maybe I’ll bump into you tomorrow, or the next day.

Cheers.

Actually, in hindsight that comment was uncalled for.

Take care if you’re out on the fireground.

Cheers

I am not condoning the throwing of lit butts or other stupid acts however, based on your observation that she was on her Ps and a girl (I’m assuming you mean a young woman) she was possibly only 7, 8 or 9 years old at the time of the 2003 firestorm and may not really remember it.

Unfortunately many people in the community don’t pass on knowledge (in any meaningful way) that needs to be passed on these days.

Way to come across really edumacated, dude 🙂

oops “prejudice” Thanks “Antagonist” Its hard to keep a posting going while your working at the same time providing support to the firies in the back ground……….

Hang on. You’re trying to justify the importance of the SES role by surfing an opinion website WHILE AT WORK FOR THE SES?

and….while that girl on her P’s throws live embers on to roads/dry grasses, it will be young people her age risking their lives to protect in all probability her property/home or parents home attempting to extinguish it (hopefully not in the winds) as all people with common sense know from the 2003 Canberra firestorm. Where was she when this happened? Down the Coast and not a care in the world? Or perhaps moved from interstate and missed the whole experience?
