Emergency Services Minister, David Elliott will join United Arab Emirates Ambassador, H. E. Abdulla Al Subousi for an official handover ceremony at Tomago on Monday afternoon.
The government of the UAE gifted seven Bulk Water Fire Tankers to Australia in the wake of last Summer’s devastating bushfires.
The Varley Group was given the task of building the vehicles at its Tomago facility, with the contract worth more than $3.4 million dollars.
The tankers will be disbursed among bushfire agencies across Australia such as the RFS, Victoria’s Country Fire Authority and the WA Department of Fire and Emergency Services.
