basically - they way they are presently staffed and funded - they expect - career stations to reach 85% of calls in 8 minutes on call urban stations to respond to 85% of calls in 11 minutes rural statins to reepond whenever to have jaws to car crashes in 30 minutes 90% of tme haz mat response in 60 minutes for 90% of calls 90% of population in New Zealand is within 9 minutes drive time of a fire station looks like they expect on call urban stations to mobilize within 3 minutes - that is pretty fast for on call crews - unless oncall stations are closer together than career urban staions - or maybe their calls are more clustered near the oncall stations than the career stations - iirc they only have about 5 career stations anyhow in any case - the yardsticks are pretty simple - 8 minutes - 11 minutes - 30 minutes - 60 minutes and that is nationwide -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "massfire" group.
