Willow Grove gets keys to new ultralight

Members at Willow Grove Fire Brigade have welcomed a replacement for their ageing slip-on unit.


Acting Operations Officer Paul Taylor presented Captain Schultz and brigade members with a new style Landcruiser ultralight on 25 March.

Brigade members were quick to investigate the new truck and complete their first training on it.  

The unit was funded by a 2018 Volunteer Emergency Services Equipment Program (VESEP) grant. 

VESEP is an ongoing program funded by the Victorian Government that provides local emergency services volunteer groups with access to grants for operational equipment, vehicles, trucks, tankers, watercraft, trailers and minor facility improvements.
