by | April 20, 2016

One year on from the April “Super Storm” that impacted much of the Hunter, the NSW State Emergency Service (NSW SES) continues to work with impacted communities to help them prepare themselves and their homes for future weather events.

“We have also been working closely with lower Hunter floodplain communities to ensure that information collected from the April 2015 flood is captured and entered into our existing Flood Intelligence Database,” Ms McFadden said.

NSW SES Hunter Region Controller Alexandra McFadden said the storm was the largest in terms of number of requests for assistance, in the services’ 60-year history.

NSW SES Units in the Upper Hunter are seeking to attract new members to Aberdeen, Scone, Denman and Merriwa Units. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, phone 1800 201 000.
