Milford to get new fire appliance

first_imgDonegal is to get a brand new fire engine with the arrival of the appliance set for Milford fire station shorlty.The news has been welcomed by Deputy Pat the Cope Gallagher.This is the first new fire alliance purchased by Donegal since 2013, when Stranorlar was then delivered an appliance. Deputy Gallagher said the purchase of a brand new appliance is welcome news, as in the interim period from 2013, a practice of purchasing second-hand equipment had been adopted by the Department and Local Authorities, a practice he is most critical of.Pat the Cope added that this is very welcome news for the Milford Fire Station catchment area and the personnel who service in that district.The new piece of fire equipment, a 2017 Scania fire tender, is to be delivered today Friday and will be operational within a number of weeks.“This new equipment will ensure that the station is equipped to the highest possible standards in the years ahead. I am a firm advocate of investing heavily in the fire service, having previously served as a Minister with responsibility for fire services nationally.” Pat the Cope stated the fact, that this is the first appliance purchased as new since 2013 is worrying, we must continue always to ensure our fire service equipment is up to the highest possible standard – and that can only be guaranteed by investing in new and state of the art equipment at all times.“The fire services role is critical as front-line responders in times of fires, accidents and even flooding – there is an onus of responsibility on the Government of the day, to ring-fence and guarantee funding is provided and to further guarantee equipment is of the highest standard.“I will be raising the matter directly again with Department officials to ensure that the fire services remain a top priority moving forward concluded Pat the Cope.Milford to get new fire appliance was last modified: October 6th, 2017 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:fire tenderMilfordPat The Cope Gallagherlast_img read more
