    My current job is dangerious enough. I don't need an unpaid job that is also dangerous.
    Good luck finding someone.

    Anyway, I think this conversation is getting a little bit off the top of this thread

    Are you any good with ladders and confined spaces?

    I've got some sumps I need cleaned out.

    I can't pay you to sleep like the real firemen though.

    Most days when i drop the kids off at school i see him walking his dog, with his wife usually. It's a surreal thing and makes every minute of volunteering worth it.

    I do it as a community minded thing, along with Land ARS, Coast guard, Medical response and other voluntary organisations that I'm involved in, only difference now is, I'm paid as a RFO during the fire season.
    Step on my toes I'll jump on your head

    We/I have had plenty of those to but we must celebrate the successes when they are dished up

    Anyone got one of those new-fangled tablet thingies in their truck yet? We've been experimenting with a little samsung tablet, offline map/navigation app, hydrant maps, putting the locker inventory on electronic on the tablet, but what is stopping us getting any further with it is a lack of access to data on station. When we can get the thing fully up and running it will be a damn good tool.

    I would like to get the checks form turned into an electronic version, complete online and it gets emailed out automatically on completion but again, lack of access to data. Roll on BYOD...

    iAuditor on iPad is a mean tool for online/electronic checks etc. Can store if no data connection and auto syncs when in signal.

    Nah, BoP. One of the Tauranga units...

    Will have a look at that iAuditor app, it's on Play Store for Android as well. Looks like it will be a much easier way of linking online forms into the checks systems. Cheers

    Either Silverdale or Manly (or both) have got them set up. Pretty sure it is on Ipad. One of the Silverdale SO travels for Chubb. A group of them are stomping around Abel Tasman Park and will call him later in the week

    are they part of new appliances or something that'll be rolled out once the green light button is pressed? We are supposed to be getting a brand new appliance this month so wondering if it'll have one as standard.

    Not likely
    Some brigades have done their own setups.
    you will need to buy your own smartphone to run the tablet
