It’s taken several years of planning and lobbying but finally it looks like we have a new boat coming soon.
We’ve worked with RFS Engineering and several other water based brigades around the state to develop 3 new boat concepts – a small boat, medium boat and a large boat. We’ve also helped develop the detailed design for the medium configuration boat and a prototype (pictured) has been built. A contract to build boats for the RFS is being finalised and we are hopeful we’ll get a new boat sometime in the coming 12 months.
The new boat is awesome and represents a big step up in fire fighting capabilities for the district.
Stay tuned for more details about when the boat will arrive.
