STATE Emergency Services in Rockhampton and the Barcoo shire have been on the receiving end of some early Christmas cheer.
Rockhampton's SES Unit has secured four news vehicles, bought by the Council in what Mayor Margaret Strelow describes as an "investment" in safety.
"Our incredible SES volunteers do so much for our region and we are proud to support them in any way we can," Cr Strelow said.
"The four vehicles we're replacing are still in good working condition. However, our policy is to replace the vehicles every seven years to ensure the fleet is in top condition."
Two of the replaced vehicles will be sold to the Barcoo Shire Council.
SES Central Region Manager Andrew Wyatt said it was a welcome and positive initiative.
"The assistance of the Rockhampton Regional Council has greatly enhanced capability to the SES in the Barcoo Shire (and) is a fantastic example of two councils working closely together to support the SES and the community," Mr Wyatt said.
