MELBOURNE, Australia — The latest high-tech prototype firefighting vehicles have been unveiled by Minister for Environment and Climate Change Ryan Smith today at Warrandyte State Park as part of the Department of Sustainability and Environment’s (DSE) expanded firefighting fleet.

The vehicles will be used for fire management on Victoria’s 7.6 million hectares of public land, or roughly one third of the state, and as part of the Victorian Coalition Government’s planned burning program, aimed at reducing bushfire risk to people, property and communities.
