Community Action Teams

Be part of a community group to utilise your skills or local knowledge.

Clean your gutters, downpipes and drains

It is important to keep your gutters and downpipes clear as blockages can cause the water to overflow under the eaves into the roof cavity.

When to call

Call the NSW SES on 132 500 if you have experienced damage from storms, wind, hail or a fallen tree and if a tree branch is threatening your property or a person’s safety.

Recipe for Disaster

Clean your gutters, downpipes and drains regularly to prevent blockages. Blocked gutters means rainwater runs down the walls and can pool on your roof.

Unit Volunteers

The NSW SES values people who can offer different skills and experiences to meet a wide range of community needs.

Feed a Farmer
