Council has chipped in more than $170,000 to help kit out Noosa’s local State Emergency Service (SES) volunteers with two new vehicles.

Council provided just over $69,500 toward a new Toyota Land Cruiser Military Workmate Dual Cab ute and $105,000 toward the cost of a new Isuzu Crew Cab truck.

“These vehicles will support our local SES personnel in the vital work they do during times of emergency. We are very pleased to be able to assist them,” said Cr Joe Jurisevic, Deputy Chair of Noosa’s Local Disaster Management Group.

SES volunteers raised further funds to fit out the truck and ute with specialised kit and equipment.

Local SES Controller Pauline Eglington welcomed delivery of the new vehicles this week.

“The new SES vehicles give us a greater capacity to respond to any emergency management situations that may arise,” Ms Eglington said.

The Queensland Fire and Emergency Services also provided a $15,000 subsidy to Council to help fund the purchase of the truck.
