Heathcote SES was among 14 Victorian SES units to receive new equipment as part of the annual AAMI equipment handover program.
Members Steve Johnson and Brett Redstone accepted the equipment.
AAMI has been an SES community partner since 2002, providing funding for Victoria’s 153 units to buy equipment.
This year, about 1400 pieces were bought, ranging from chainsaws, fuel safes and road rescue equipment to flashing traffic beacons.
SES chief executive officer Stephen Griffin said AAMI’s support provided valuable equipment for SES volunteers, complementing their valuable work.
Heathcote’s equipment included two Arlec cord safes, a Packexe smash kit, a Milwaukee impact wrench, two deep socket sets and an air-compressor.
