Country Fire Service – Supplementary

The Hon. A.L. McLACHLAN ( 15:43 :12 ): Supplementary arising out of the minister’s question: has the minister given any consideration to installing cab pump starting switches on CFS trucks to ensure volunteers are not forced to leave the safety of their crew cab during a burnover?

The Hon. P. MALINAUSKAS (Minister for Police, Minister for Correctional Services, Minister for Emergency Services, Minister for Road Safety) ( 15:43 :30 ): Again, I would like to thank the honourable member for his question. I am more than happy to take that on notice. That is not something that I have specifically turned my mind to, but I am more than happy to take that question on notice and establish precisely if that is something that has come into the CFS’s contemplation.
