New fire appliance for brigade
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.
The new fire appliance at Whangamata¯ has a distinctive white bumper.
