NSW State Emergency Service (NSW SES) is urging people to make sure they are ready once Storm Season arrives this October (1 October 2021).

The Bureau of Meteorology has advised that this year’s Storm Season is likely to bring similar conditions to what was experienced last season – widespread heavy rain and the very real risk of riverine and flash flooding.

With just over ten days to go, NSW SES is calling on all communities to make sure they are aware of their risks and prepared for when Storm Season arrives.

Storms can happen at any time, and even more so during Storm Season, that is why it is important you are aware of when severe weather is expected by listening to local news and weather forecasts.

In the event severe weather is expected, make sure you are ready for when it hits, so you can keep yourself, your family, your animals, your home and your business safe.

Simple things like cleaning your gutters, downpipes and drains and removing blockages, trimming trees and branches that could fall, fixing holes in your roof and having an emergency kit can all go a long way to helping you be prepared this Storm Season.

If you need help preparing for Storm Season, visit Get Ready NSW for more information.

For emergency assistance in storms or floods, call 132 500. In all life-threatening situations, please call Triple Zero (000) immediately.
