Waihi Fire & Rescue has flash new fire truck

Waihi Fire & Rescue Service has a brand new fire appliance. This one has a bit more than bells and whistles with about 12 computers on board.

Waihi Fire Service & Rescue took possession of their new appliance late last week after it had been fitted out to their requirements.

The Waihi firefighter volunteers have spent time learning the nuances of the truck which is a welcome addition to their fleet.

The new appliance is already being well used in the last week, responding to a number of call outs. 

Waihi Chief Fire Officer Moe Stevens said, the specialised gear on the new truck will complement their existing fire fighting appliances and the local crew has quickly come to grips with its new features.

A bonus is this new fire engine fits into the Waihi Fire Station without having to do any alterations to the firehouse like they had to do with the last fire truck.
