The Union has been informed by members at Rescue Monitor Stations that there is some confusion by management over the staffing requirements for these appliances.

Accordingly, the following minimum staffing levels are to be applied to all Rescue Monitors:

Each Rescue Monitor will be operated by two operators.

The operator who drives the appliance must hold a current qualification to operate the appropriate Rescue Monitor.

The other operator will either be:

a) qualified to operate the appropriate Rescue Monitor; or

b) a genuine Trainee who is in the process of completing a structured training regime on the operations of the appropriate Rescue Monitor.


This instruction will apply until further notice from the State Secretary.
