New truck for Baysie SES

Guardian Express - - STREET WATCH -

Bayswa­ter SES has re­cently taken de­liv­ery of a new 12 tonne flatbed truck val­ued at $180,000.

The cus­tomised ve­hi­cle was de­signed to pro­vide emer­gency lo­gis­ti­cal sup­port and has the grunt re­quired for get­ting where it’s needed fast. The truck is equipped with a crane to make de­liv­er­ing equip­ment such as sand­bags and tarps much eas­ier dur­ing an emer­gency.

The truck was pur­chased with fund­ing pro­vided by the De­part­ment of Fire and Emer­gency Ser­vices and a grant ob­tained by the City of Bayswa­ter, through the Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment Grants Scheme.

Like the volunteers of the SES, the truck will be there to lend a help­ing hand in an emer­gency.
