in their wisdom shut our mobile phone towers down and this was the only way most of the fire crews could communicate with each other
as only the major trucks had radios crews couldn't relay the where abouts of fire outbreaks and where they themselves were people couldn't ring for assistance basically
stopping progress in fighting the fires and evacuating people that wanted to go but had no transport
The report was that they shut them down to only allow emergency calls through but the only people with the number was pollies ,head office ,media, all the
people not on the ground with this in some cases with no info it became a case of stay alive for fire crews because this country is rough and it is hard to see if a fire is
trapping you in a valley
It won't be long before the back patting starts by the gov of how well they've done and what they've done for the people even last night on our local news
our premier Anna Pile of S h@t said '' We managed to save Gracemere '' the people fire crews paid and volunteers not her she couldn't even pass up a chance to promote herself on the back of a disaster ''Shame on her and her promoters''
Didn't see any pollies up here fighting fires yet they take the credit for doing so in one way shape or form :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

This was their valient effect to "save" Gracemere from the 'Fire/Flood' thread;
"First "go now" was issued at about 1500 hrs, schools were told to hold students for pick up by parrents, same with daycare centers, students at the two schools in Gracemere come from upto 30 - 40 km away (including the communities of Kabra/Stanwell) and most parrents work in Rocky, 10 km away. Texts were sent to parrents informing them of this. Then the d**kheads in Brisbane direct all roads to be closed inbound, not understanding that people had to go back to Gracemere to pick up students and other family members from the outlying communities. eventually they had to reopen the Cap H'way to two way traffic to Gracemere, but kept it closed to the other communities, to which they reopenned a back road to. This back road branches off the Cap and runs though the middle of Gracemere and has one school and one daycare center on it. however these d**kheads in Brisbane, in all their wisdom only wanted one lane of this road opened to two way traffic, keeping the other lane for emergency vechicles only. So you can see why your mate gave up and decided to stay put.
Brisbane need to butt out and leave these things up to local authorities who have a better knowledge of local conditions."
To summarise their much touted emergency management plan;
1. panic the public by releasing advises based on incorrect advise from Brisbane based "experts" in an untimely manner.
2. allow the media to add further incorrect commentry with live feeds, from infront of green screens in the safety of their studios in Brisbane, when broadcasting these above advises.
3. attempt to control people movements in a way that causes maximum bottlenecks, thus ensuring traffic accidents and possible loss of life because people can't get out in time.`
edit, forgot to add,
4. declare catastrophic event so they can get sh@tloads of monies from the Federal Govt, very little of which will finds it way to the poor b@stards who lost everything.

Yep Trekin it boggles the mind and we wouldn't imagine other hidden reasons they make such dangerous and non practical
decisions in the face of a disaster
It makes you wonder how these clowns get votes but to the unsuspecting eye they're doing a great job according to the BS media
These pollies and media need putting in a fire crew and let them see first hand what it's like and then have BS printed about their
situation
This is the worst I've been through in 40 odd years here and it was not caused by climate change it was caused by the abundance of excess
fuel for the fires created by not being able to selective burn during winter end of story '' this thought is unanimous around here '' the only ones
thinking different are the bigknobs
We are due for a change in gov to a common sense thinking mob maybe like America we might need a wild card to turn the tides of stupidity
as is the case here now

The only thing I can't work out is why you haven't been able to get burn off permits. Been no problems here in CQ, in fact just less than a month ago they did ground fuel control burns on some vacant lots right in the middle of the little village we call home. These burns, which looked very scary with flames up to 5 plus meters, and ripped though 1/2 acre blocks in a matter of minutes, burnt up to the fence lines of nieghbouring properties and within 10 meters of the houses with no problems. Just like around Gracemere, these were fast moving grass fires, which don't generate enough heat to catch the trees and turn into a proper bushfire.

Can't get permits to burn or clear up here either. Add to that the state forest on both my front and rear boundaries has had zero fuel reduction burns for six years. .... The powers that be wanna hope the forest doesn't go up cause we'll be lucky.not to lose half the f@3kin shire. :evil: :drinks:

Yeah mate the local rural fire service requested a few and were knocked back so if you are getting them and we are not
then all I can say the bloke issuing your permits is far smarter then the bloke issuing ours it could even be a thing with the man himself
he may be a greeny at heart
We used to have fire bans put on in hot dry weather but now the bans stay on permanent the council has informed us
we have local fire wardens that issue permits but they now have to confer with the big fellas first and that's usually a no except for rare circumstances

Maybe that's what you need. Had same in Rocky up to about 10 years ago when the Berserker Ranges (which is mostly State forest) went up and threatened to take out half the city. Been anual winter fire bombing of the ranges since.

Just saw a report on ABC of two arrests for arson in relation to the QLD fires.

Before they're locked away, preferably forever, these cvnts should have to watch everything they own incinerated in front of them

One greeny rep down here in tassie, recently campaigned that burn offs were impacting schools and asthma sufferers and damaging the environment and they would cease altogether if she got elected.
When questioned on how she would reduce the forest floor fuel to ensure the devestating state fires of only 6 years ago did not RE occur...she stated she would authorise bulk use of round up type chemicals and manual clearing of undergrowth.

She was then quizzed further - despite the chemical issues with round up which should concern anyone interested in the environment, wouldn’t round up and pesticide kill undergrowth, which would then dry out leaving a tinder situation?

“I’ve declared my position - next question...”

Seriously - how do some ppl manage to live past 30...

Mate I was having a similar discussion with a friend of mine, who got solar panels on his roof and a Tesla power bank battery and declared on FB how he was giving the coal powered plant the flick.

The most laughable part of this whole sorry thing is the Govt describing the conditions as unprecedented;
unprecedented /ʌnˈprɛsɪdɛntɪd/
adjective
never done or known before.
So if these conditions were unprecedented, why do the fire danger rating signs that grace the hiways and byways outside of every single town in this State, have Catastrophic as the highest level?

"Catastrophic" as a rating was only brought in up here after the Victorian fires in 2009(?) as far as im aware? :unknown: :drinks:

Was the 2009 Camberra fires, and was because the old rating system was based only on certain types of fires under certain conditions in certain areas, and didn't fully express the levels of severity of what was then rated at severe.At the same time they dropped the low rating as it was believed that there was really no such thing as a low rating in Australia.

The big Canberra fire "firestorm" was 2003, i was in it. So if it was changed in 2009 it must have been because of Vic........... Or the Gov is just 6 years behind the times which is also possible :lol: :lol:
