AGL has announced its support of the Glenthompson Rural Fire Brigade, with a donation of $14,000 towards the purchase of a new Light Fire Tanker.
The Light Fire Tanker will enable a quicker response to fires and serve as an important back up to the primary tanker truck for any emergencies that arise closer to Glenthompson.
The funding was made possible through AGL’s Oaklands Hill Wind Farm Community Fund which provides financial support for a range of community initiatives, projects and events that benefit local communities.
AGL's Wind Energy Operations Manager Victoria, Brendan Ryan, said that AGL is proud to provide support to the local community.
“The new fire truck will help provide the local community with additional resources when responding to emergency situations.
“As a long term operator of wind farms in the Glenthompson area, we will continue to make an ongoing contribution to the local and wider communities,” Mr Ryan said.
