  1. looks like you had some fun today …. 😀

  2. Nicely done there Mark, Ted and Chris could take a few pointers from there.

  3. I can't believe how noisy that was! I think I have a pretty low tolerance for noise, that racket would drive me round the bend. It was a bit like Saucepan Man meets Howling Banshee.

  4. I think it would be possible in the UK for a multi skilled response, the FBU (fire brigade union) stopped the fire authorities putting defibs on fire engines because they were concerned that they would be sent to jobs with people suffering chest pains (stopping the clock) as the ambulance service know it. I had 9 years working for the fire service and I would say 80% of our shouts were nothing jobs or jobs that could be well managed with 1 or 2 people eg, stolen car burning away in a field, garden shed alight, non trapped/injury RTC, false alarms just a few examples that really do not require a crew of 6 firefighters (sometimes more). It is a waste of UK tax payers money for the fire service to keep up with this kind of response, a multi skilled person can get to a call and request back up should the job need it, just like the ambulance service use RRV's.
