The problem with the Fire and Emergency Services Agency is it is staffed by people who have no background in emergency services planning. There is one soul who has experience in fire services, but the rest are social workers, political appointees and senior bureaucrats the Conservative administration had to put out to pasture. It is essentially an administrative unit to provide funding for training and equipment to fire departments, not much else.

A very strange document, void of anything of substance. It puzzles me how the nit wits who wrote this can stand up and call themselves The Government. Buried in the BS however is a directive aimed at the average citizen homeowner. He/she must have a disaster plan for their house, know the hazards of their geographical location and "have a kit".. No mention is made of what should be in the kit.. Common sense right? Right! But having published the necessity for a "plan", "kit" and "knowledge" the government can always use their "Plan" to assign blame should something unfortunate happen and the poor family not have a "plan" or "kit ... I can see the Government mouth piece standing in front of a microphone, handing out blame willy nilly, all the while patting himself on the back of course. It's a strange world we live in.

This entire government is long on buzzwords and short on substance, let alone concise structure. They're great at spending money though. Nothing 'conservative' about them

A geek you'm not. I kept wondering in all this when Kevin O'Brien's name was going to appear. Sounds 100% bullshit just like all his crucifictions of the English language. Can't this derelict be lashed to a backbench, alongside maybe John Dinn, or Steve Kent and Terry French who should be there too.
