SES diligent during wild weather
THE Tweed SES has been sticking close to home in a bid to give assistance to residents during recent wild weather.
Tweed SES local controller Brian Sheahan said the organisation had assisted residents during heavy rainfall over recent weeks.
“We have been working in Tweed, mopping up the area and looking after things like fallen trees to keep people safe,” Mr Sheahan said.
“We are lucky there has been no flooding.”
Mr Sheahan said members of the Richmond Tweed SES organisation were working in areas that needed attention.
Last week the Tweed SES helped to sandbag areas of South Tweed in anticipation of water damage to homes and flooding.
Mr Sheahan said if the wild weather returned, the SES was there to help.
“If anyone needs help in that circumstance then they can call us. That’s what we are here for,” Mr Sheahn said.
“We have been very quiet in the Tweed region but we are still here to help if anyone needs us.”
Residents who need assistance from the SES can call 13 25 00.
The Tweed and Murwillumbah branches of the SES are always looking for more volunteers.
