            • So what is it about red paint that makes it so difficult to get
              good coverage?

              I used a recommended primer and three coats of red before all was said and done.

              Happy New Year.

                I don't think that you will get down to here though - if I were a betting man I'd bet the house on Sydney calling for anything that has 4 wheels and a pump by about 15:00 Sunday - you guys will get the call as with our current fire situation we won't be able to send much help this time.

                For the benefit of those in the U.S., Sydney has an urban interface problem like Californian cities. When things go bad there we get the call to go up and help - it's only a 900 mile Code 3 run My FDNY friends totally freak when I tell them that we go on 900 mile runs for fires - one of them said that if they go more than 5 miles then it must be a really big job.

                • If we don't hear from Patty in the next few hours then it's a fair bet that he's riding a truck into hell - things have really gone pear shaped, the *****s hit the fan and the world's gone nuts north and south of Sydney tonight - north of Sydney is somewhere no firefighter in the world would want to be right now as they are really really in the ***** with their backs against the wall. Currently they are fighting from house to house and street to street but are being driven further back all the time - that's 120+ 5 man companies being driven back, the wind is blowing 70mph steady and gusting a lot harder and it just plain ain't looking good

                  Good luck Bro and stay safe if you are down in amongst it.

                    • Just got a report a few minutes ago that the fire is roaring on a 15 mile front with a 150 foot high wall of flame and is about half a mile from taking out the town of Kariong which has about 650 houses in it (well it did have a few minutes ago anyway). Embers were landing all around the houses and starting numerous fires in the town.

                      Bugger all you can do when it's got a 70mph wind behind it. They've got over 40 other fires out of control in that state as well, so it's a mess up there.

                      • Sounds nasty

                        I participated in interface protection duties for the city of Cranbrook B.C in 2003

                        We were called in 'just in case', and never saw any action.

                        Just watching the flames across the valley sent shivers up my spine...

                        Some of the forestry guys gave us an education in the wildfire classification system (which has a name which I can't seem to remember). The worst as I recall was a rank 7.... Tree's candling and flames running in the treetops. Spotting up to several miles ahead of the fire, and generating its own sucking wind due to the insatiable apitite for o2.

                        I hope PattyV and all else near Sydney are safe and sound.

                        • I havent been called in yet. They are probably keeping us QLDers on hold a bit longer as replacement crews later on in the week. Thats the only reason i can think of that im not on one of the longer code 3 calls ever.

                          Imagine how many alarms you would have to sound to get mutual aid from 900km away.

                          For all the life of me, i cant see a firefighter going to hell. At least not for very long. We would end up putting out all the fires and annoying the devil too much.

                            • Just read that a firefighter is in a critical condition after recieving 3rd degree burns to 60% of his body. Apparently he got trapped in his tractor whilst trying to save his property.

                              My prayers are going to him and his family.
