URGENT REMINDER -FLOOD HYPOTHETICAL TOMORROW FOR NORTH SHORE AND SETTLEMENT PT.

You are invited to attend an SES afternoon at Panthers from 2:00pm to 4:30pm tomorrow, Saturday, to present hypothetical questions to a real panel of Emergency Services  (Police, Ambos, Council etc.) to determine how they will respond to flood and emergency situations on the North Side.

In the lead up  to  and during  the 2013 flood their response was delayed and at times not well coordinated e.g. some residents received flood warning messages as they were standing on the River bank  watching the water come over! The power went out, the ferries were taken off and emergency evacuations by helicopter had to be made for ill residents without an SES presence. Damage was in the order of $M’s and 36 cars were towed away because people were not prepared or complacent.

Since then ,the volunteers from the Fire Brigade who in the past have assisted and given warnings are  not allowed to take their vehicles out in water.

Join us to develop a community plan for the area. Just rock up or T.65925800 or email mnr.admin@ses.nsw.gov.au
