Volunteers from the Moree Rural Fire Brigade are celebrating the announcement of new equipment that will help assist with training and fire fighting capabilities.
Member for Northern Tablelands, Mr Adam Marshall today visited the NSW Rural Fire Service (NSW RFS) Moree Brigade to congratulate members on their steadfast commitment and professionalism.
Mr Marshall formally presented the Brigade with Discretionary Grant Funding of over $4,000 to further enhance the brigade’s capabilities.
“It is a pleasure and an honour to be able to present this additional funding to the Moree Rural Fire Brigade,” Mr Marshall said.
“By securing new resources, our volunteer firefighters are better placed to continue the outstanding work they do and the Moree community is fortunate to have such a dedicated and hardworking Rural Fire Brigade.”
NSW RFS Team Manager Superintendent Michael Brooks said the grant will provide a new adjustable nozzle for structural fire fighting, a new television to enhance Brigade training programs and a replacement fridge/freezer for the station.
“Namoi/Gwydir Team volunteers and staff provide the highest standard of support to the community,” Superintendent Brooks said.
“It is a fantastic day for members of this Brigade to be receiving this grant for new equipment that will help the volunteers hone their skills so they can continue to provide protection and assistance to the community when required.”
