Fire and Rescue NSW Strike Teams assessing flood damage - VIDEO - Windsor
Published: 08 Jul 2022 04:18pm
Fire and Rescue NSW (FRNSW) Strike Teams are currently on the ground, assisting residents in the Sydney streets worst affected by flooding.
Dozens of FRNSW firefighters have been going door-to-door, conducting Rapid Damage Assessments (RDA’s) and offering advice and support to those in need.
The teams have also been helping residents salvage belongings, dispose of damaged furniture, strip sodden carpet and underlay, and remove mud and water from their homes.
This people power is reducing the burden on those who had to evacuate but are now able to return home and begin recovery, including many vulnerable people.
This operation is expected to continue for several days.
Five additional Strike Teams, comprising 80 personnel and 25 fire vehicles, were deployed to the flood zones today 'Prepared for Anything' as they assist the clean-up efforts.
