There have been numerous concerns conveyed to the Union Committee regarding the introduction and operation of many aspects of the HazMat Decontamination Corridor.
There has been no consultation with the Union over the development of this and subsequent concerns have not received proper attention.
Consequently the Union Committee has resolved to advise all members not to participate in the Train the Trainer courses for the HazMat Decontamination Corridors until further notice.
The Committee also notes that for the most part such participation is voluntary.
The Fire Service has been advised of this position and that the Union looks forward to full and proper involvement as has happened with other appliances/equipment – e.g. Rear Mounted Pumps, B.A. P.P.E. etc.
