Rochester SES will now be able to carry chainsaws and back-up fuel in its new vehicle.
Unit controller Judith Gledhill said when members attended incidents where chainsaws were needed, they had to carry the extra fuel in another vehicle.
She said the new four-door Ford Ranger was much larger and had more space inside for a five-person crew.
