THE Borambola Rural Fire Brigade has had its firefighting resources enhanced with the delivery of a new truck on Saturday.
The $320,000 truck provides more capacity and it replaces a tanker that has reached the end of its lifespan.
NSW RFS Riverina Zone operations officer Bradley Stewart welcomed the new vehicle.
"It's more modern and the safety features are a lot better than the truck it's replacing," Mr Stewart said.
"It's part of our fairly extensive replacement program and fleet maintenance."
The new truck has an electrically operated water monitor, which allows crew members stay inside the vehicle while directing the water from the front.
It has a water capacity of 4400 litres and allows flameproof curtains to be drawn should it be overrun with a fire.
State upper house MP Wes Fang handed over the keys to group captain Alan Brown.
"It was fantastic to hand over a new Cat 1 fire truck to the Borambola NSW RFS Brigade," Mr Fang said on Twitter.
"The truck will provide additional capability for this hardworking local unit to protect their community."
Also present at the event was chief superintendent Ken Hall and superintendent Roger Orr.
