Members are advised that the Wellington Trial for the PCA will commence on 10 June 2002 in the Kilbirnie Station Yard.

The Wellington Local endorses the trial and therefore encourages all members to participate.

Members should be aware that participation is entirely voluntary.

To enable as many people as possible to attend the trial, a schedule of appliance movements will be distributed to enable 4 appliances a day to attend.

The first day of the trial will be attended by, amongst other people, Mike Meaden Secretary Dunedin Local who was the overseer for their trial. Local President Jeff Keeys will be posted to black watch for the duration of the trial as the union representative. Station Officer Graeme Keech will be posted to black watch for the duration of the trial as management’s representative. During the trials Information will be collected by a representative from the Human Performance Centre of Dunedin.

The Human Performance person will be the only person collecting and handling any information relating to the trial and it’s participants. Fire service management will not have access to any of the information gathered.

Members are advised that the trial times, here and in Dunedin, will be used in the formulation for final times when the Assessment Proper starts. The date of which is yet to be confirmed.

Members are also advised that there is an “Age Effect” built into the assessment and therefore this Local  stresses that it is vitally important that as many “Older” members as possible take part in the trial. It is in your own interest to “add” your time to the trial.
