Woopi firies to respond faster

WOOLGOOLGA Fire Station crews are now even better equipped to respond to road accidents with the arrival of new rescue gear.

Station commander Ray Webb said the equipment, worth up to $20,000, would enhance the capabilities of firefighters at road rescue incidents on the Northern Beaches.

The upgrade comprises new lighting, a new generator, a powered hydraulic pump, new hydraulic cutting shears, improved patient protection gear, a new litter and slings, new tools and stabilisation gear for vehicles which have tipped on their sides.

The new gear was handed over to the station on Tuesday night by Inspector Craig Easy from NSW Fire Brigades in Port Macquarie.
