    No offence taken
    No denial some whack jobs make it through the system as they do in any organisation however are not a reflection on the 9500 vollies who are there for all the right reasons

    The vollies have my respect as well. They're the ones who'll save my arse when I've done something wrong, be it a match or vehicle. Or even medical event as I found out the other day from a work mate. Big ups to you all

    Just an observation, when I'm carting all that crap that allows me to 'run into a burning building', the one thing I am doing is NOT running. It's more like a controlled forwards stagger... (Note to self, less pies more gym...)

    I wasn't the one who brought up volunteer firemen starting their own fires. They're the ones not wired right.

    Or the ones in Russell too drunk to even put a ladder up the right way during an audit.

    @keneff where did you live in Vic?[/QUOTE]

    Hi Zimmer, yep, just a few degrees of separation. At that stage I lived near Gisborne, not far from Macedon, just off the Calder Highway. I don't think Ash Wedneday was deliberate. It was more a case of the Woodend Shire Council not cutting trees back from power lines. They later tried to put a levy on the rates to pay damages and insurance excesses. More bureaucratic arse-covering, and denial. I think kids lit a couple of the fires in S.A. at the same time, though. Later, when we moved up near Maldon, a lot of the smaller fires and grass fires we had to deal with were started by lifestylers burning their clippings and other litter. But yes, it can't be denied that there are sickoes who are attracted to fire services. Definitely badly-wired somehow.

    Waiuku Brigade had 2 alarm callouts overnight. Poor buggerr must've had a hectic night. I hear the siren, but just go back to sleep these days, don't leap out of bed wondering how bad this one will be any more.
    One of the few advantages of old age and decrepitude.

    Thoughts on the new FENZ livery for those that have seen it? People have commented on the complete lack of the Queens Crown or any associated commonwealth-type connection (probably reading something into it that isn't there or intended - I'm not too phased either way on that point)...

    i hadn't seen it so just googled it. Looks alrite, serves a purpose.

    Is it just me or does there seem to be soo much conspiracy theory type talk out there these days? Seems to be a bunch of people that can only see negative far fetched bollocks in everything.
    If i could have a full time job shooting pests i'm up for over time.

    Well, it is the end of the NZFS world as we know it haha...

    The one thing I thought from the sample picture was the battenburg pattern just doesn't look as clean and defined as the blue/red livery. Probably got 50 people with qualifications saying a lot of nice things about it but it is a very busy image on the vehicle. It's a bit like the yellow/green of the new St John ambulances, probably works great in England but down here in NZ with our different latitude and declination figures the green just blends into our morning and evening sun. A couple of times now I've been stopped looking for the source of the noise and had an ambulance materialise out of the sun right in front of me.
