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.
