NSW Nationals Member for Lismore Thomas George is still hard at work delivering for his community, despite his impending retirement.

The veteran MP handed over a new $345,000 firefighting tanker to Tenterfield Fire Station this week, helping ensure the community remains safe.

“Tenterfield firefighters do an amazing job protecting the local community and this new truck will further improve the quality of our emergency response,” Mr George said. “This vehicle enables firefighters to access fires in difficult terrain and has a water spray protection system that can be operated from the cabin to protect the crew.”

The NSW Nationals thanks all of our brave men and women who serve in the emergency services and will continue to work to support them in any way we can.
