The following letter was sent to the Inspector General for Emergency Management in Victoria by an 84 year old fourth generation East Gippslander. It was also sent to us.
The ICAC is investigating allegations concerning alleged corrupt payments related to the supply of catering and other products to the NSW Rural Fire Service (RFS) between 2009 and 2015.
It would seem as thought the Commissioner exercised his ability to determine what a volunteer can wear by way of ceasing the supply of the blue shirt and where is the NSW RFS Uniform Protocol Manual that was referred to back in November 2012.
The suggestion of a disconnect between NSW RFS fire ground management and volunteer members is based upon submissions made by people, including many volunteers.
