As we head into bushfire season
The Shadow Fire and Emergency Services Minister is calling for a parliamentary inquiry into firefighter radio equipment.
It follows allegations of critical safety issues with the rollout of the Digital PS5 Radio Network as we head into bushfire season.
Dale Last claims no action has been taken for three years.
"Our firefighters put their lives on the line every single day and we need to make sure that their radio equipment is functional," he said.
He has issued a 'please explain' to premier Annastacia Palaszczuk.
