STATION ASSESSMENT: Port Lincoln MFS firefighter Matt Noonan checking the equipment on an MFS fire truck to ensure everything is in order ahead of their station assessment on June 29.THE Port Lincoln MFS is preparing for its annual station assessment on June 29 when it will be assessed by assistant chief fire officers from Adelaide.
Chris Smith and Michael Morgan, who work at the MFS headquarters in Adelaide, will travel to Port Lincoln to ensure everything is running smoothly.
Port Lincoln MFS station officer David Welsh said the purpose of the annual assessment was to ensure stations are safe and firefighters are up to date with training requirements.
“The assessment will take about one hour,” Mr Welsh said.
“The main thing they’ll be looking for is safety around the station.”
MFS station assessments focus primarily on safety around the station, as well as ensuring equipment is at a high standard and training requirements are met.
Local MFS firefighter Matt Noonan said firefighters had been using their Tuesday training nights to hone their skills and practice emergency drills.
Port Lincoln MFS has won the station assessment three times in the last 15 years – in 2000, 2003 and 2006.
