QFRS Codes

Mitch is right.. In most cases the fleet number is used.. but when the fleet numbers get changed over in the CAD system, it needs to be allocated something, and so a random set of ZZ callsigns is used... Just means they used that instead of the fleet number..

They normally have appliances out there which are no longer in use parked out the back of the workshop so it is quite possible they were moving some of those around.

If appliances "are no longer in use" as in "awaiting disposal" etc. then FireCom would not be interested in their movements. Apart from the fact, that such vehicles probably no longer have radios fitted.

In terms of crewing, anyone know what the first and second numbers refer to when an appliance is stating their crew. I'm guessing it's something to do with level of training for certain things?

Eg, "turning out with a crew of 1 & 3" etc...

Cheers.

1 officer and 3 firefighters. I think that minimum for urban firefighters is 1 and 3 but can do 1 and 4

For example:

314C turning out OIC Smith Crew of 1 and 3

Also I think it's for insurance purposes and for incident reports etc....

Full time urban's always run a crew of 1 + 3. One officer and three fire fighters. It doesn't get called over the radio as it's always the same.

In terms of auxilliary crews, due to the fact it changes every call, if the crew doesn't supply the crewing numbers, Firecom will ask for it. The one is made up of the captains and lieutenants. Having said that, if the crew is made up of 3 officers, the crewing will still be 1 + 2 if that makes sense.

It lets the OIC (if it's the second responding pump) know if he's got officers or whatnot responding plus it's an accountability issue if it turned to s**t.

Cheers

1 & 3 is usual for Urban Permanent crews but 1 & 2 is minimum.
31 Station ran 1&2 day shift Sunday. This meant that they responded code 30 to every job and a second pump was always sent on turnout.
