Bantry fire fighters Trevor Hogan and Gerard O’Leary with Station Officers Ian Vickery, Bantry and John O’Connell, Bandon at the unveiling of two new 8,500 litre water tankers to complement the existing County Council Fire Services fleet.
The new water tankers, which will be stationed in Bandon and Bantry, will improve fire fighting services in responding to fires in areas which do not have an existing hydrant supply.
In welcoming the water tankers, Chief Executive of Cork County Council Tim Lucey highlighted the importance of such equipment to the Council’s Fire Service, “These new water tankers will greatly improve our ability to deal with incidents where water resources are an issue as they will provide additional water carrying and pumping capacity.”
