    We had a cracker today.
    Pager went off, info said fire alarm activation.
    I hooned to the station, level twos on and of we went. Was quite a distance to the address but when we got there the elderly lady was on her front deck water some flowers. I'm out with a ba set while the oic checks out the scene.

    Turns out the old lady had called 111 because the smoke alarm was beeping, needs a new battery.

    This is the part of volunteering that makes it hard. 1hr before I have to get up for work

    Nah, work the day - sent home at lunch for 'compulsory rest' (not sure what you are going to do at lunchtime when you are in the usual awake time!). Back on at 1800, off to the job site 1-3/4Hr drive away, delay to start due to wrong size parts awaiting us - Du'oh.

    Finally start, get in the water at 0012, work at 4m until 0253, get out pack up go home arrive at 0548 and try to go to bed and sleep just as everyone else in the house is getting up (including the cat - little sod).

    And then, the pager goes...

    That is when volunteering gets hard!!! Sometimes you just have to turn the damn thing off cause you can't safely do it - and making that call isn't easy...

    We have already had a rather interesting year our main crv is out of commison due to structural issues . Followed by the purchaing of hr1 then turning up to training one saturday to find someone had pinched an outboard off our smaller crv thats in the photo followed by the recovery of said motor . Then we won the mitre 10 coastguard rescue of the year . I spent 5 hours today stripping the remaining electrics out of old crv ready for it to go back to coastguard nz. our ops teams are all gearing up for the mammoth task of getting our masters and crew cocd and ready for the christmas period ( a small 3-4 week gap ) so its all on at the moment

    I love a happy ending.
    Got sent out last night to search for missing tramper in some pretty nasty country out the back of kauranga valley Thames.
    The guy was just going in to check out the old dams etc on Monday but hadn't shown by tues am so SAR get a call. He was not equipped at all and certainly not dressed to spend two nights in the bush , but was found and extracted by chopper this arvo, and is apparently in good shape.
    Me, Iam stuffed. Going to get some well needed kip now.
