Given the traumatic legacy from the events of 2003 it is incumbent on any ACT government, regardless of its political hue, to ensure a service exists that can take meaningful action when the sky is so black it seems to be falling and the whole world looks like it is on fire.
The post ACT Emergency Services Minister ignores UFUA concerns appeared first on United Firefighters Union Australia.
Public safety is in jeopardy as Fire Services in various parts of the world (including areas in Australia) cut budgets, refuse to recruit firefighters or, honour agreed staffing levels and in the case of Aviation Fire & Rescue in Australia endeavour to reduce establishment criteria , either because of funding reductions, apathy, ignorance or political interference; more people are dying or are destined to die as a result. Read on for the latest on this sad and deadly scenario, from our comrades in the Fire Brigades Union (FBU) in the U.K.
Congratulations are extended to the West Australian Branch of the UFUA, as they celebrate with a Ball on the magnificent achievement of representing their members for one hundred years in September this year.
