MR CRISP (Mildura) — Despite the best efforts of Steve Warrington to convince Mildura that under the new arrangements between the volunteers and the paid firefighters the Mildura integrated station will improve, I note that history is not in the chief officer's favour. The working relationship at Mildura has best been described as toxic for many years, something I doubt will change easily.
Issues that the community want answered are how the assets are divided, what amenities will be provided for Country Fire Authority volunteers and where the equipment will be housed. So many other issues that concern volunteers and the community have not been answered, and therefore the legislation before this house should not be passed until these questions have been considered and tested. To do so would be to remove justice for our volunteers.
