I was astounded to find out that the Retained fire engine at Queanbeyan is not staffed every weekday and often it’s not staffed at night. I asked a retained fireman from Queanbeyan “What happens if there’s a fire?” I couldn’t believe the answer “The ACT come over and do our work for us.”
Let’s just make sure I have this right.
FRNSW pay for a retained fire engine and retained crew’s that don’t go to fires. (they still get paid their retainer)
ACTFB cross the border and do their job for them.
Why do we provide a service to NSW when they could fix the problems?
Tell me this is not right!
