Andrews government rejects bid to modernize firefighting equipment

Nick Cater of the Menzies Research Center says the Andrews government’s refusal to try the Victorian Fire Service to modernize trucks and equipment “doesn’t make the Victorians safer”.

The offer was rejected despite warnings in leaked Cabinet documents that its aging fleet would not provide adequate protection for firefighters and the community, according to The Australian.

“The group of people that I think we all need our support for, especially in times of fire, are volunteer firefighters,” Sky News host Gina Clark said.

“And we must give them all the support, not attack them as the Andrews government was doing.”
