Matata Operational Support

The Matata Operational Support unit was setup in 2004 in response to a need being identified for a 1st response unit to be established in the area. Initially they were responding in Matata 941, but after the floods in Matata in May 2005, funding was available for a dedicated vehicle to be purchased - Matata 9433. This vehicle responds to all MVAs and First Response calls and can be added to any other call in the area if extra help is required. The vehicle carries medical response equipment, vehicle cutout equipment, and a chainsaw.
