Equipment stolen from RFS radio repeater vehicle

The Northern Tablelands Team of the NSW Rural Fire Service has posted pictures on its Facebook page showing that one of its portable radio repeater trailers, deployed to the south-east of Nymboida, has been vandalised.

The criminals took off with six tyres, two axles, two jerry cans and radio equipment, rendering the repeater unit inoperable… endangering the fire crews who rely on communications to keep themselves safe, and of course members of the public who rely on the rural firies for their protection.

The Team has asked anyone who has any information about the incident to contact Grafton Police on 02 6642 0222.
