The grant will fund the purchase of new equipment to train and educate the wider community to be better prepared for a disaster.
The Mt Pleasant Country Fire Service has welcomed a recent increase in volunteers. However, the influx of new members has made training difficult due to the lack of modern equipment. The professional training and encouragement of additional members is a high priority for the Brigade. Education of the wider community is also important so, in the event of an emergency, locals are prepared and informed.
