SES members Reg Ellis and Judith Gledhill were joined by Member for Rodney Paul Weller last week when they received their new vehicle.
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.
The SES received a $37,197 donation from the State Government’s Volunteer Emergency Services Equipment Program last year.
Rochester SES contributed a further $26,936 which was made up of donations collected in the past few years.
