Published: 12 Jul 2022 01:48pm

Fire and Rescue NSW (FRNSW) is continuing to assist residents, struggling to deal with flood damage to their homes.

With floodwaters receding, FRNSW Strike Teams have hit the streets of the Hawkesbury and Central Coast areas, helping neighbourhoods mop up water, hose out silt and move ruined furniture from flood-damaged homes.

At Chittaway Bay, on the Central Coast, fire crews even cleaned-up seaweed piled up in backyards.

Two Strike Teams are working in the Hawkesbury area, along with four Rapid Damage Assessment (RDA) crews and two Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) or drone reconnaissance units.

At Sackville, FRNSW has deployed its Hytrans Bulk Water Transfer Unit to help pump large quantities of water out of affected areas.

Other Strike Teams, from the Hunter Valley and Central Coast, remain at work around Tuggerah Lakes following up damage reports and offering a helping hand.
