    I did a pager test last week for the crew and found a couple of weak spots (flat Batteries). I use a pager every day for my work, it's the same pager I use for police , medical, fire and security both alarms and phone lines . Couldn't work with out it.

    That wind is playing havoc and making the RFO's nervous and twitchy. The other day at a rural fire, embers were carried 400m and started a spot fire.

    1 from the other night. Started as a car fire and the wind carried it. Unlike @BRADS we have ours at a more gentlemanly hour so we are home at 2.30am and sleep before work

    Norsewood and Dannevirke are at a flare up. Brads must be at home tucking his sheep in for the night

    Last night, 2215 off to a house fire unit crewed our type 3 and the Scania heavy tanker so a good turnout for us. I got the cool job - drive the 26ton tanker and back down a tight rural driveway sight unseen, 90deg right hander half way down overgrown with flower bushes and trees. One of the more nerve racking backing jobs I've had, knowing it's K99 and the only water is behind me...

    Finally got back home to bed at 0400, house was a total loss no insurance so I totally feel for the owners - worst thing to happen on xmas eve. Luckily everyone got out, another 1/2 hour with everyone in bed asleep and it could have been very very different.

    Seem to have sorted it now, one or two 4-digit numbers so I have that set of numbers set up with the station paging tone as the txt notification. Much betterer, only need to check at the station for the address...

    I don't mind when it's quiet, actually prefer it. When it's quiet peoples lives aren't being turned upside down.
    On the first week in January we were called to a chest pain medical. I had the pleasure of doing the CPR when he arrested ten minutes after we arrived and was successful. With several family members watching we got him back, so stoked for them
