Code Red – Traffic Management

Code Red – Traffic Management

This Code Red is a part of SitRep 39/2024.


As members would know, we are often forced to perform tasks beyond our primary responsibilities, including handling situations that should be done by other agencies. This includes managing traffic at incident scenes, a task for which our members have not received specific training or qualification, and for a number of years been left to us due to under resourcing of the NSW Police.

Given the above, effective immediately, all FBEU members are directed to take the following action when working on roadways:

Roads, or light rail lines where needed, must be closed using your appliance and or traffic cones until police or designated traffic management personnel arrive to take over.

This instruction remains in place until lifted by the State Secretary.


In Unity

Leighton Drury
State Secretary
