Here’s a little post shared by the United Firefighters Union (UFU) earlier and we wholeheartedly agree with them about a recent bit of government silliness in NSW.

When governments do things;

  • it is sometimes more about the spin than actual change of culture
  • $ should be spent on equipment and safety for firefighters rather than pomp and ceremony, and
  • it always costs a poo-load more than if the same work was done by the community!

Because we can only embed the video itself and not the Union’s insightful remarks, this is what the UFU said in response:

“Here we go – a recipe for expense & ridicule. Consultants & changing the “brand” but never the culture- $ should be spent on operations, safety for firefighters & jobs….
A triumph of spin over sense!”
