    I'm nearish the foot of Mt Dandy? DH said it was only to Telstra and Optus (we're with 3) - so yeah, my house might get burned to a crisp but at least I have a cheap phone bill! Suckersssssssss.

    PMSL Nelle (I shouldn't be laughing... where is the confused and contorted facial expression). I would quite honestly complain... thats ridiculous.

    Rain, thank goodness. I just mentioned to Luce that I hoped you had gone. They had given an evacuation warning to some people in sassafras... basically told them if their fire plan was to flee, they should leave tonight as it might be too late if it does hit with the winds.

    on 3, didn't get one, but I DID get a heads up from region HQ that I would get one...so I waited in vain for just another beep to complete my already beep-ful day...more beeps to come, courtesy of my bloody pager!

    Mine just came through. I wondered if we were missing out because 3 sides of us are already burnt, but it must have just been late because i am with 3.

    telstra started it and I forwarded mine to a heap of people, saw you Nelle but got confused with Ange. Doh. Sorry.

    Initially sent to 2m mobiles, and latest news is that its out to 5m mobiles

    Just wait until the community warning system starts, then people will be getting personalised phone calls to their PSTN and also msgs to their mobiles

    I wonder if you can claim 'pager fatigue' to get out of it?? I think it's a great idea for non-firefighters, though

    DS is off to Mentone tomorrow morning and I'm back here working from home. There's an uncleared block next to my house that I worry about.
