We’re asking members of the public to suggest clear and simple language for the Warnings and Incidents webpage on CFA, DSE and MFB’s websites.
The new terms will be incorporated into the upgrades to the Warnings and Incidents webpage, which is being redeveloped for the next fire season.
What words make sense to you? Take a quick survey and tell us.
Take the 'Junk the Jargon' survey
(If you're a firefighter try to put yourself in the shoes of an ordinary community member who doesn't know operational terms. Internal operations systems will continue to use existing terminology.)
