FBEU Notice: Safe work on roads

June 27, 2007
With the lifting of the ban on False Alarm Notifications (FANs), members are reminded that ONLY the new FANs books (labelled version E on the cover) are to be used. Old versions are not to be used, and the Dept has agreed to issue Version E to stations. If they do not, it will be viewed as a NSWFB self imposed ban on FANs!

This is a reminder that in an effort to speed up the process of a recommendation to reduce speed limits around emergency vehicles, members are asked to submit a “Notice of Injury/Near miss” form for EVERY incident they attend on roads. In the advice column, we are advised to write “that the recommendation to the NSWFB and Govt in relation to 40km/h speed limits around emergency vehicles be implemented ASAP”. Your assistance is appreciated.With the lifting of the ban on False Alarm Notifications (FANs), members are reminded that ONLY the new FANs books (labelled version E on the cover) are to be used.
