Gafas celine outlet ACT budget will see 16 more firefighters trained at new Hume recruitment college The new in house college will be set up at the Emergency Service Agency ACT's Hume training centre.
ACT police and emergency services minister Mick Gentleman said the extra frontline firefighters will address soaring overtime costs, as revealed by The Canberra Times on Tuesday, and ensure all staff could take their accrued leave. "Having done shift work for 11 years I understand the pressures on my life and it's important that we celine boston bag address those pressures and allow our firies to have celine outlet kissimmee some more time with their families," Mr Gentleman said. "We are also hoping this recruitment will be as successful as the last in bringing more women firefighters in." An equal opportunity recruitment policy was introduced to ACT Fire and Rescue in 2016. A corresponding shop celine handbags recruitment drive resulted in a five fold increase in women applicants for the college that year and four of the 16 new firefighters were women. One male aspiring firefighter recently launched a challenge of the policy, claiming the policy discriminates against men. But ACT Fire and Rescue chief officer Mark Brown said the agency would continue its commitment to emplying more females. "We will be encouraging all women including those who previously applied, plus new ones to apply when applications open, and the best place to keep an eye on that is the ESA and Fire and Rescue websites," Mr Brown said. The ACT government is also hiring firefighters from interstate fire and rescue agencies, although Mr Gentleman did not provide these recruitment figures, citing it was an "ongoing process". The United Firefighters Union ACT secretary Greg McConville said the announced funding showed the government finally acknowledged the firefighter shortage the union had long campaigned to fix. But given ACT Fire and Rescue had 20 fewer firefighters than the funded establishment, he said more needed to be done. "We think there still needs to be a re assessment of some priorities, because while fire incidents increased by 8 per cent last financial year, there was no accompanying increase in the number of firefighters, only in non operational staff," Mr McConville said. "This recruitment will go some of the way but once many firefighters retire we will still be understaffed by in excess of 20 next fire season, so there should be gafas celine outlet another recruitment college after this one." Mr Gentleman said the government would look at further recruitment needs following the training ofthe 16 new additions later this year. Wednesday's announcement came a day after it was revealed Canberrafirefighters racked up an "unsustainable" shop celine online overtime bill that rose $1.5 million in 2015 16. Documents showed staff worked $4 million worth of extra hours in the financial year, contributing to more than half the Emergency Service Agency ACT's entire overtime payments.
Mr Brown said the boost in recruitment would address the issue of overtime. But he said the ACT's fire stations were not understaffed at any time, despite a firefighter shortage leading to the huge overtime cost. .
