Mark, Apologies for the late reply to your request mate. Managed to get xmas off this year so have been on holidays with the computer & phone turned off. Back to reality now however. You may know an accquaintance of mine over there, a Paul Baker from the National Rural Fire Authority. We worked together in the Melbourne Emergency Operations Centre during the 2006 Victorian Fires.
Anyhow Welcome Mark & a safe & prosperous new year to you & yours.

Hey Mark, I was actually born in Auckland and lived in Opotiki then my parents moved back to aus.
I have just resigned from BlueScope Steel last week where I was a Industrail Fire Officer, am now working in my own company doing training & development and also operational work such as rescue co-ordinator, fire offciers, confined space standby etc.
Will be interesting times in the new year first time ever I haven't had a paycheck from week to week.
Keep safe.....You and your family have a great Xmas.
Hi Mark, the middle of summer eh? It's the middle of winter here. This morning it was 5 degrees below zero when I got up......a little cold. Summer sounds good right about now, lol. Tomorrow is winter solstice and even though it's the darkest day of the year it just means we'll start gaining more day light after that, yea! Happy Holidays and stay safe fighting those fires.
