Quality Gloves? New firefighting gloves used at ARTEP … perished leather? Being investigated by Chief Superindenant Hogg.
At the last ARTEP again there were auxiliaries who did not have the full set of turnout gear on completion of the course. This matter is being urgently dealt with by management … please let me know of any PPE problems. (Rene van Raders, Malanda)
