Wild winds have seen volunteers from the Ku-Ring-Gai SES Unit, and other Units around Sydney as well as up and down the coast, responding to a large number of Requests For Assistance from members of the community.

Dry weather conditions, and strong gusty winds today, have resulted in a number of trees and large branches falling onto footpaths, roadways and buildings.

Our highly skilled volunteers have given their time today to restore access to and from affected properties, t...o clear roadways and to perform temporary repairs to buildings damaged as a result of this weather.

Whilst it can be hard to forecast exactly when storms will strike, they inevitably do, and investing time in ensuring that you have prepared your home and family for severe weather events is an investment in your own piece of mind. Ensuring that any trees close to your house, or capable of hitting your home if they were to fall, and having preventative work done before they fall is key to reducing the risks of damage to your property ot injury to your family.

If you have trees which appear to be unhealthy or dead, or you believe pose a threat to your property, contact a Tree Services Contractor to have them provide you with their expert opinion. Don't wait for the tree to land in your living room before you do something.

These volunteers put every ounce of energy into their role. They help during storms, night after night, making others comfortable in a bad situation. They regularly practise their skills and value tea...mship and mateship. Orange is the best! See More

If they can help, they will. Ku-ring-gai SES are a friendly hard-working bunch of people, who give their time freely when the worst happens to you - even on Christmas day!
Yesterday, our volunteers made quick work of a number of Request For Assistance, with trees down on houses, driveways and roadways. Watch our skilled operators in action!
