TITS


There are many types of tits. 
Some are quite rare these days as due to heavy use of pesticides and other chemicals reducing their food supply their numbers have diminished. 

BUT  - we are referring to NON OF THESE!
(but we reckon you guessed that) 


TIT's  in Fire & Rescue Terms can mean only one thing.............

TEST   IT   TUESDAY  

Launched in 2011 (we think) the Test it Tuesday campaign encourages people to test their smoke alarms on, yes you have probably guessed by now 


FCCL has started researching other Fire and Rescue websites and we think its a very fair comment to say that WYFRS site is DIRE. 
It seems to us that they do not wish to engage with the general public at any other level than in  an US and THEM situation. 

For example below is a video from  South Wales Fire  that demonstrates how fire fighters are prepared to make "idiots" of themselves to get a very pertinent point across. 



What do WYFRS say about smoke alarms - its here    and its very BORING, un engaging and dry.

Come on WYFRS you employ qualified professionals in your communications team, surely  they can come up with ways to engage the public in fire safety via social media .....................its gets to lots of people  (we can assert to that) is cheap to do and engages old and young alike.

BUT ........whoops, they do seem to have lost one key member of the comms  team, the one Cllr Brian Selby was slathering in praise how wonderful she was at her job , whilst in the same breath making digs at certain blogs and websites.

Hannah Stoneman, the 2012 IRMP consultation co-ordinator  who after her job was re profiled and about  £20k knocked off her "value" - voted with her feet and went to Yorkshire Water. Did she jump, was she pushed, we will never know?

Question : Does this mean she was over valued  in the first place?  As the  financial year has ended and the WYFRS accountants do their sums to prepare the annual accounts we await with interest to see if the number of people employed who earn £50k or over a year has decreased from last year. We even have a chartered accountant ready to give them the once over.


............. put it this way if they haven't , we will be very annoyed and will blog our disapproval                                                                                        accordingly. Fire fighters are losing jobs, staff being made redundant and  in our opinion senior staff should also be taking the hit.  Cos according to at least one little birdie pictured above 
"We are all in this together"

oh and just to let you know we have updated our union pages here   with Unison information and added a few extra links to our reading lists. 

Happy Browsing 

The FCCL Team.

Staffordshire FRS did a very good cover version of the Sugar Babes song "Push the Button" - you can see it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m0qOCBNwT-A
