The 'opposite carriageway' is interesting. Certainly if you see the air ambo overhead you can reasonably expect that traffic in both directions will be halted.
Your 'standard' is how you drive alone, not how you drive during a test.

Trumpton seemed to send onto both carriageways just in case the location was wrong carriageway.
They seemed to send as many appliances as they could crew. Maybe this was how the retained guys got paid.

Yes both sides held for an helicopter. Also, both sides held for offloading horses, (pony girls' horse transporters always seemed to be old G or H reg sheds).

There was a retained guy near here who was a one man job creation scheme until he got caught.

How did he do that? Go round starting fires or putting cats up trees!

Starting fires. Apparently not unknown amongst fire fighters although, luckily, not common.
