New fire ap­pli­ance for brigade

Coastal News - - News - By NIGEL AIREY

This week has been quiet with no calls re­quir­ing re­sponse. Weather has been less than favourable but driv­ers are driv­ing to them which re­ally re­duces the risks. Our Brigade re­ceived an ap­pli­ance last month re­plac­ing the Hino res­cue ten­der which has been here since 1989.

The Sta­tion now has the two Iveco ap­pli­ances with sev­eral match­ing fea­tures and mod­ern sys­tems.

De­cals on ve­hi­cles and some of the uni­forms show the changes from the pre­vi­ous New Zealand Fire Ser­vice to Fire and Emer­gency New Zealand.

Some other changes so far are the im­proved sup­port, train­ing and equip­ment up­grades.

Wish­ing you a safe week.
