Again Daniel Andrews and James Merlino fudge the figures to divide the fire services, says Shadow Emergency Services Minister Brad Battin.

They continue to focus on covering for their union mates.

They disrespect volunteers and disregard community safety.

The figures released last week, for the second time in two months, fail to have individual brigade response times for the MFB, but apply this stricter standard to the CFA.

This is a devious trick, designed to mislead the public, denigrate volunteers, and render comparisons with MFB response times impossible.

When will Daniel Andrews end his war on volunteers?

The Premier must stop backing dodgy UFU thugs and start protecting all fire-fighters, and all Victorians.

Daniel Andrews and Labor must finally agree the only way to protect those who protect us is a Royal Commission into Victoria’s fire services.
