Volunteers congratulated

EMERGENCY services crews should be praised for their tireless efforts during last week's ferocious weather, Tweed SES controller Brian Sheahan says.

Cyclonic winds and heavy rain ravaged the Tweed last Wednesday, which saw local SES crews working around the clock.

Mr Sheahan said he wanted to congratulate not only the SES volunteers, but other emergency services crews for their efforts.

“I was most impressed with the support we got from SES crews from out of this area who came up to assist,” Mr Sheahan said. “We got support from all over the state. After that, they moved south and continued to follow the water down the coast.

“But we also need to mention the police, the VRA (Volunteer Rescue Association), NSW Fire Brigade and the Rural Fire Service - all the emergency services contributed in some way.”

Mr Sheahan reminded people that the SES was always seeking extra volunteers.
