Storm trucks, rescue vehicles, snow mobiles and a 22-seater bus will be part of a new fleet for the NSW State Emergency Service announced on Sunday.
The rollout of the new lifesaving fleet was made at a family fun day at the International Peace Park in Seven Hills in Sydney's west.
Minister for Police and Emergency Services David Elliott said the $56.4 million Fleet Replacement Program would provide the SES with 270 vehicles, 124 marine vessels and 95 storm trailers across four years.
NSW SES Acting Commissioner Kyle Stewart said the new fleet will increase the capability of the NSW SES to support communities prior to and during emergencies.
"NSW SES volunteers use this equipment every day to save lives and protect their communities," says Mr Stewart.
"These new vehicles and boats assist our volunteers in responding to the impacts of floods and storms across NSW,"
Mr Elliott said it was important the NSW SES had access to the best vehicles possible.
It was fitting the launch was held on Sunday, a day after SES crews were battling hundreds of incidents right across the state cause by wild winds. There were almost 200 calls in the Illawarra alone.
"SES volunteers play a crucial role in keeping the community safe and we have to make sure their vehicles are up-to-date with the latest technology to provide effective and efficient capability during emergencies," Mr Elliott said.
The SES has more than 9500 volunteers who have responded to 40,044 Requests for Assistance since 1 July, 2018.
These requests include 96 flood rescues, 545 general land rescues, 769 road crash rescues, 50 vertical rescue and 619 community first responder activations.
