COMMUNITY spirit is in the air but local SES crews are sure to keep to the water thanks to the donation of a new auxiliary motor.

The donation, worth about $2500, was made in part by the Torquay Progress Association in conjunction with Fraser Lions Club.

Hervey Bay SES local controller Lol Wilton said the organisation had been trying for years to get sponsorship.

"After the Mary River flood in 2012 it was identified that the SES needed a back-up motor for safety reasons," Mrs Wilton said.

"You always have to have a plan B, this new motor allows for that bit of extra safety."
