The what nots are very important especially when you learn how much this site could go to the shits so easily and in only seconds.

I shall indeed. A what not is when you are out at flooding and a senior officer asks you why his car is floating down the road and didn't he instruct you to tie a rope with a strong knot in it to make sure this would not happen. Your answer is "What not ? I dont remember you saying anything about a knot, is it written on the Incident command board? cos if its not written on the board it didn't happen".

There ya go, what not's dealt with 22

Something you can draw pictures of buildings, fire engines and cows on.
We are the willing, led by the unknowning, doing the impossible, for the ungrateful.

Use BA in work (on an ERT), if I can help, shout.
The best gift you can give to someone is your time, because you are giving them something you can never get back.

And the Brits have gone and fecked it up for us.
They've dropped the Transitional mode, now you can only be Defensive or Offensive.
I predict it will be applied here too in a short space of time.
I'll miss Transitional Mode. It was one of those things that was completely useless, confused everyone but sounded as if it was very important.

Still baffled as to how they thought "transitional mode" was a good name to use when it means something else.
I'd have gone for "sortof mode".

Yep it was always a daft term. Really just a way to put a name on something that actually happens at a fire but doesn't fit the neat and tidy schoolroom vision of how things should be.

I'd have just used "neither"
We trained hard ... but it seemed that every time we were beginning to form up into teams we would be reorganized. I was to learn later in life that we tend to meet any new situation by reorganizing; and a wonderful method it can be for creating the illusion of progress while producing confusion, inefficiency, and demoralization.
