Two new fire vehicles have hit the road in Strathroy-Caradoc.
The vehicles were purchased earlier this year as part of Council's commitment to ensuring the community is well-equipped to deal with any emergencies that might arise.
A pumper-rescue truck has joined the fleet at the Strathroy station, replacing a 1987 pumper and a 1992 heavy rescue vehicle. A new tanker was purchased for the Melbourne station, replacing a 1987 tanker that had been in service there. Both vehicles were delivered in August.
