Laverton Volunteer Fire and Rescue Service gets new pump
Tuesday 21 September 2010 – 9:55 AM

Laverton Volunteer Fire and Rescue Service is now better equipped to fight fires after receiving a new appliance worth almost $100,000.

 

FESA District Manager Don Sullivan said the new pump which was delivered in early September would enhance the capabilities of the crew to respond to emergencies in and around Laverton.

 

“The old Laverton appliance was nearing the end of service life,” Mr Sullivan said. 

 

“The new pump has improved rescue equipment, the latest firefighting equipment and can pump 450 litres of water per minute.”

 

The replacement of the old pump is thanks to FESA’s State Government’s funded Capital Works Investment program.
