    Fark, that just stopped that conversation. By that stage, one would think that you kind of ARE the brigade...

    Bugger me...

    Did not see this coming at all!

    https://www.tvnz.co.nz/one-news/new-...r-firefighters

    But, in my case I do 80% or so attendance at calls which for my station is around 240 a year callout rate. This works out about 192 calls, I live 6km from the station so 12Km a callout (I realise that some calls I'm on station and some I'm further out but running on the numbers for averages).

    So, 12Km x 192 calls = 2304km, which at IRD mileage rate works out to cost to me of $1751.04 of turning out to the station.

    So, what I'm saying is it's a good start but...

    Interesting. Most training courses I've done over last couple of years we've been been given or told about claim forms to complete for any expenses. So far I don't think anyone has filled them in!

    Wondering how much higher the payments would be if they didn't faff about replacing overalls with the new 'temporary' separate pants & tops.
    Liking some of the other new gear being dished out though. Got an awesome new portable pump. Electric start & sweet delivery to a couple of forestery or 70mm. So much better than pull starting the old two stroke!
