Flowerdale CFA are now the very happy owners of a new Ultralight tanker. The tanker will provide additional firefighting capability for Flowerdale and help make Flowerdale safer. Following Black Saturday safety is a major priority of the overall recovery process.
CFA members commenced training today on the use of the tanker and will receive formal accreditiation from the CFA.
The funding for the tanker was generously provided by Darley and the Paul Newman Foundation who both provided $60,000. On behalf of the community we extend our thanks to both organisations.
The tanker will be on show at the Australia Day Celebrations that will take place on 26th January at the Recreation Reserve.
