Recommendations

As a fire manager and Regional Commander of the Country Fire Service I feel that after experiencing the methods used in America as they relate to Incident Command Systems and Interagency Liaison, that there are a number of issues that are important to fire services and the Country Fire Service of South Australia. The methods of bringing about change not only includes the Country Fire Service (CFS) but other Agencies within South Australia. To achieve this the methods I propose to use include:

  • written submissions to the CFS 
  • other interagency committees within South Australia 
  • presentations at different State and Inter-state forums eg. AFAC 
  • submissions to fire and emergency magazines
