Rescue upgrade for FRNSW 062 Bankstown

062 Bankstown got an upgrade recently with their rescue equipment being swapped out in favour of the latest Holmatro – Core System.
This upgrade is a great benefit to both our firefighters and the wider community as it enables us with a greater range of tools and enhanced safety features to undertake rescues extremely efficiently to assist with extraction in emergency situations.
The new gear is lighter than what we had and great to work with. We used the battery operated combi tool for about half an hour doing numerous tasks during the drill and still had 1/4 charge left. We also have 1 additional battery on the pump!
