SES is now on top of any call outs

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

COM­MU­NI­CA­TION prob­lems dur­ing emer­gen­cies could be a thing of the past af­ter SES re­ceived an ad­vanced com­mu­ni­ca­tions trailer on Satur­day.

The Ro­tary Club of Monto handed over the keys to the trailer at the Monto races on Satur­day.

The state of the art com­mu­ni­ca­tions trailer uses so­lar power via pan­els on top of the trailer.

The trailer has a UHF ra­dio, satel­lite tele­phone and other an­cil­lary equip­ment.

For­mer Ro­tary pres­i­dent Rus­sell Larsen said the idea to fundraise for the equip­ment came af­ter the floods in early 2013 when com­mu­ni­ca­tion be­came a prob­lem for emer­gency ser­vices.

PHO­TOS: TROY KIP­PEN

THANK YOU: SES lo­cal con­troller David Wil­son re­ceived the keys to the trailer from the Ro­tary Club.
