SES NSW – Be Prepared
It’s never too early or too late to prepare your home for the Summer and while we are expecting a drier than usual Summer, we can still get severe storms that bring flash flooding, hail and strong winds. So, it’s important to do the following to protect your homes.
Clearing gutters and drains of leaf and plant debris and any other obstructions. Repair or replace any damaged or broken roof tiles to prevent water damage and leakage. And trim trees and branches, especially overhanging ones that could break and case damage.
Keeping your home and surroundings clean will help keep you and your family safe.
Flood water can be deceptive and dangerous. Floodwater are fast-flowing and can contain hazardous materials. Roads may be washed away underneath and the depth is unknown.
To keep you and your family safe, never drive, ride or walk through flood waters. For more safety tips, go to www.ses.nsw.gov.au
