WALHALLA will be better protected from fires with the arrival of a new tanker, thanks to the state government’s Volunteer Emergency Services Equipment Program.

The fully-equipped tanker has replaced a slip-on at the town’s fire station.


Narracan MP Gary Blackwood handed the keys over at the Erica and District CFA station last week.

Mr. Blackwood also presented crew member Des Micah with a 45 year clasp for his long service as a volunteer firefighter.

The brigade raised $30,000 for the new tanker, which was pooled with the $178,000 VESEP grant.
