Promotional re-deployment

Posted on March 19, 2010 at 12:55pm 3 Comments

Keen to know what the current outlooks is on being deployed to another station when one obtains a promotion.The reason i post this is because after working for 12 years in one station and having lived for 44 years in the area i just think it a little bit crazy to move to another station where i have absolutely no idea of the area or any hot spots. I understand the reason for not working with the same people due to friendships obtained but i'm pretty sure just changing shift would be beneficial… Continue

Hi Wayne,

I appreciate your accepting the friendship invitation. I hope all goes well for you and your family there.
I felt the same about being redeployed on promotion at first. I had been in the station for 9 years at the time and was being deployed to another watch in another station on promotion from firefighter to Sub-Officer. I swapped to stay on my own watch and was sent back to my own station within a week. A situation arose the second night on duty where I gave an order to deal with a minor incident a certain way and went back to the truck to talk to control. When I got back, things had been done differently and one of my best mates was the main guy involved. I corrected the situation but had to have words on a professional basis with him when we got back to the station, which he was not pleased about, and neither was I. It was not easy or pleasant but it had to be done. He acknowledged my position the next day on and we remain the best of friends.
If I had just gone to the new posting I would not have had that unpleasant experience.
after a while you slot into the new place anyway and I have moved a couple of times through promotion since without a problem.
