New fire engine on manoeuvres

9th May 2005

Lismore Volunteer Fire Fighters have at last taken possession of their brand new engine, a 4 wheel drive Mercedes 814B with a Godiva 2 stage fire pump. It arrived on the island on the 22 April and became fully operational on the 29th. All volunteers have already undergone extensive training and this continues at the new station and around Lismore once a month. In addition 4 fire fighters meet every Monday for maintenance work to make sure everything is in tip top condition. The force is currently 9 strong and at least 3 others have volunteered to join in the near future.
