In response to: on-air commentary during Chris Smith's 2GB program, 22 June 2012
Radio 2GB host, Chris Smith, broadcast a series of commentary regarding Fire & Rescue NSW (FRNSW) response times to a fire in Ramsgate during industrial action, 21 June.  

The Chris Smith program claimed FRNSW Media could not be contacted after several attempts.  When FRNSW contacted the program to offer on-air talent to respond and correct the detail, the program producer declined the offer.  

The letter from A/g Commissioner, John Benson addresses issues raised on the program that could not be addressed on-air by a FRNSW representative during the time of  2GB's Chris Smith program.
