    I would be interested to know how many shouts the RDS at your station did in 2009 and can you get a crew 24/7? Are you ever off the run for inadequate crew or CM's? Thanks.


    Hello Andy,
    The RDS at Normanshurst got 200 shouts in 2009 - this covered us being a multipump station and, since October, just one pump and a special.

    And we are able to get a crew 24/7 perhaps because we are in a fairly large town so most of our crew work locally plus some of the wholetime firefighters ride as RDS too.

    I hope that answers your questions... To get more info about our shouts simply visit and select the View our Shouts link.
