Bright and shiny and brand new

NSW Rural Fire Service (RFS) Northern Tablelands Team has taken delivery of ten new Fire Tankers to assist with fire fighting operations in the Glen Innes Severn, Tenterfield and Inverell Districts.

Three tankers arrived in the Glen Innes Severn district this week, soon to be delivered to Wellingrove, Deepwater and Reddestone brigades.

Northern Tablelands RFS Manager Superintendant Chris Wallbridge said it was a great asset to the team to have three new vehicles.

“Whether fighting bush fires or assisting during other emergencies such as floods, storms and road accidents, RFS volunteers are always on hand to assist and these new trucks help them continue their valuable work,” he said.

“These new tankers have arrived just in time for the 2012 fire season which has already started on the Northern Tablelands.

“These tankers can carry more water and equipment and will boost the capacity of volunteers to keep our community safe from the threat of bushfires.”

All the tankers are also equipped with improved safety features including state-of-the-art fire protection for volunteer firefighters.

Crews are protected from fire in the vehicle with specialised spray over systems which are designed to enclose the cabin area with a cocoon of water spray.

The Local District Brigade members would like to thank the Glen Innes Severn Council for the ongoing commitment and support of the rural community, and recognition of volunteers and their efforts.
