Fire­fight­ers’ gear stolen

The Dominion Post - - News -

Thieves who stole equip­ment that could save peo­ple’s lives have left fire­fight­ers stunned and an­gry. A house in Palmer­ston North was do­nated to Fire and Emer­gency New Zealand so it could be used in a train­ing ex­er­cise this week. Thieves broke into it and stole a de­fib­ril­la­tor, first-aid and burns kits, fire­fight­ing gloves, torches and hoods, as well as a hot wa­ter cylin­der, air­con­di­tion­ing unit, and fit­tings from the house. Po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing.
