Country Fire Authority (CFA)
I'm a member of the CFA - here's stuff I've written related to that:
Find the Fire
When we receive a page the location of the incident is given by a co-ordinate based on the Redfearn series, which is used in our map books. In order to look up a location on Google Maps this co-ordinate need to be translated to Latitude/Longitude. I use a module by P.Howart based on a spreadsheet by Geoscience Australia to make this calculation.
In it's current simple form a pager co-ordinate is entered into the form and the incident is shown in relation to my home CFA station in Woodend.
All Woodend CFA callouts from 1st Jan 2014 to 4th March 2014 (reset configuration to use the Woodend Fire Station)
