Simon Corbell has announced the handover of decommissioned emergency services vehicles to Samoa:
Minister for Police and Emergency Services, Simon Corbell, today handed over the keys of three decommissioned ACT emergency services vehicles to the Samoan Government to assist in fire and emergency management in the Pacific Nation.
“It is a pleasure to be able to hand the keys of these three ACT emergency vehicles knowing that they will make a real difference to the capability of emergency services over in Samoa,” Mr Corbell said.
“The new vehicles will increase FESA Samoa’s equipment stocks to help them manage fires and other emergencies”
The donation follows a request to the ACT Emergency Services Agency by the Samoan Fire and Emergency Services Authority.
“The ACT has agreed to provide FESA Samoa with two former ACT Rural Fire Service fire tankers and one ex ACT Ambulance Service vehicle,” Mr Corbell said.
“All the vehicles are in good working and roadworthy order despite being past their use by life in the ACT.”
