    Default Black Saturday Inquiry

    Any one out there following this. Headlines "CFA failed Victoria" make one feel very sad. CO Rees and DCO Warrington managed not to lose any trucks or crews on Black Saturday. I assume that trucks were not deployed or permitted to go on suicide missions like ash Wednesday. They actually did a good job in this regard and it is a pity that this has not been recognised.

    Because no crews were lost on Saturday many members feel they should have been allowed into areas with a big red truck where they could have been lost with little prospect of success. This should have been covered better in the debrief.

    What failed was risk management which responsibility largly falls on local government and ironically is DCO Warrington's speciality.
