Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2018 Week 9 Hansard (23 August) . . Page.. 3611 ..


(4) The co-location of the ACT Rural Fire Service (ACTRFS) and ACT Fire & Rescue (ACTF&R) crews at West Belconnen provided an opportunity to train and familiarise themselves with each other's response capabilities. While this training was not formal, or scheduled, it gave each Service a better understanding of their respective roles. Members of ACTRFS and ACTF&R also took the opportunity to learn about the other Services' vehicles, the equipment carried on them, how the equipment is used, and the circumstances in which each piece of equipment is used.

I am advised that this continues the excellent interaction between the Services, including working together on Level 3 Incident Controller training, the further development of ESA's rapid damage assessment capability, hot props training, and fitness testing. Members of both Services are on deployment assisting in fighting the bushfires in the United States, and a member of ACTF&R is also currently on secondment in the ACTRFS.

ACT Ambulance Service—crews (Question No 1615)

Mr Coe asked the Minister for Police and Emergency Services, upon notice, on 3 August 2018:

(1) In relation to QON No E18-036, on which dates did the six day shifts which fell below minimum crewing between 11 April 2018 and 10 May 2018 occur.

(2) On which dates did the 10 day shifts which fell below minimum crewing between 11 April 2018 and 10 May 2018 occur.

(3) On which dates did the 10 day shifts which fell below minimum crewing between 11 May 2018 and 3 July 2018 occur.

(4) On which dates did the nine night shifts which fell below minimum crewing between 11 April 2018 and 10 May 2018 occur.

Mr Gentleman: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

I am advised that the ACT Ambulance Service (ACTAS) does not routinely report on the information sought in these questions. Each time a request of this nature is received, it is taking a considerable amount of staff time and resources to answer, and unreasonably redirecting ACT Emergency Service Agency (ESA) personnel away from important functions. As such, on the advice of the ESA, I have determined it is not appropriate to provide a response to this question.

ACT Policing—gun ownership (Question No 1618)

Mr Coe asked the Minister for Police and Emergency Services, upon notice, on 3 August 2018:

(1) Under what powers can the ACT Government or AFP Registrar demand a mental health check in order to issue a firearms licence(s).
