FRNSW conducting flood recovery work in the Hunter - VIDEO - Raymond Terrace

Published: 20 Jul 2022 01:18pm

Fire and Rescue NSW (FRNSW) Strike Teams have spent the last few days conducting clean-up and recovery work in the Hunter Valley in the wake of the July floods.

FRNSW deployed Strike Teams of firefighters to the Hawkesbury, Central Coast and the Hunter regions following the widespread flood crisis.

Over the past week, three teams and seven Rapid Damage Assessment crews were assigned to help the worst-hit areas of the Hunter including Singleton, Maitland and Raymond Terrace.

The Strike Teams are capable of assessing flood damage in up to 500 homes a day in urban environments and up to 250 properties in semi-urban areas.

Firefighters have hosed silt out of homes and public parks, removed ruined furniture onto the street for pick-up and provided beleaguered residents a helping hand with their properties.

FRNSW continues to assist its partner emergency agencies, as needed, during the flood recovery phase.
