After the devastating 19/20 bush fire season, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) Government generously donated seven bulk water tankers to fire services around the country.
On Tuesday the Monaro District was extremely honoured to take possession of this 11,000L tanker which will assist with incidents across the district.
We would love to thank the UAE Government for this incredible donation that will be a huge asset to our community.

That needs to be made very public to thank UAE. It will be a great asset.

Why does it take a disaster to get assets....from another country! Thankyou UAE!

Wow what a generous gesture

Just drop it off at Nimmitabel.

How great is that

What a wonderful donation to our community. Hopefully I've just missed a national recognition of this gesture, otherwise it seems awfully sad that there hasn't been a public acknowledgement of this generous and thoughtful gesture from the UAE.

Clean your flu out peps don't burn pine in your fire it doors up your flu in no time. Regular cleaning is worth it. And check inside your roof for anything that may be a fire hazard round toe chimney. Stay safe this winter my friends down south and stay warm.

Hope everyone is ok
