The government owned Air Services Australia is betraying thousands of Australian children with its decision to get rid of red fire engines. The corporation yesterday trumpeted its decision to replace red with what it calls "a new bright ‘yellowish-green’ fluorescent colouring". The unthinking bureaucrats, with no regard to the danger of making all those toy red engines redundant, rejected the sensible compromise many of the world's fire services are following of having splashes of the apparently highly visible trendy new colour on predominantly red engines.
