Molong took delivery of a $185,000 State Emergency Services Rescue truck this week.
Known as a light storm truck, the vehicle is part of the new NSW SES fleet worth $56.4 million, which is currently being rolled out across the state.
The Minister for Police and Emergency Services, David Elliott said the SES volunteers played a crucial role in keeping the community safe.
"That's why we have to make sure they have modern equipment," says Mr Elliott.
The rescue truck is equipped with 420-kilograms of storm and flood response equipment and the ability to charge power tools.
NSW SES Deputy Commissioner Fatima Abbas said the new truck will increase the ability of the NSW SES Molong Unit to help their community during emergencies.
"NSW SES volunteers use this equipment every day to prepare communities for severe weather and support those impacted by floods and storms," she said.
"The light storm vehicle will be a welcome addition to the NSW SES Molong Unit."
The NSW SES has 9500 volunteers who partner with their communities prior to and during emergencies.
Molong's Ronald Harvey and Robert Philpott were presented with 25 year long-service awards during the key handover on Wednesday.
