There is a welcome new addition to the team at the Meals on Wheels Central Coast Distribution Centre at Tuggerah. Itís big and powerful and will come in handy in times of power outages and storms.

Thanks to the Australian Government’s Stronger Communities Programme, a Himoinsa HYW45T5 generator has been installed to assist in times of power outages and emergency situations.

Gaining support from Emma McBride MP, Member for Dobell, Meals on Wheels Central Coast applied for a grant for Round 5 of the Stronger Communities Programme, run through the Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Cities and Regional Development and the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science.

The grant, which will share half the cost of the generator and its installation costs, is essential to maintaining the high level of support the company offers the local community.

“The installation of the generator means that we can still supply meals to our clients in the case of planned or unplanned power cuts,” said Dennis Taylor, CEO of Meals on Wheels Central Coast.

“In the event of lengthy power cuts, our organisation would face significant financial loss due to the logistical cost of the loss of meals.

“Having the generator means no loss of service to our clients, and also gives Meals on Wheels Central Coast the capacity to provide meals to members of the Central Coast Community in the event of an emergency,” Mr Taylor said.

The generator is now installed and ready to be fired up when the need arises.
