North Sydney and Mosman SES Volunteers
Ms FELICITY WILSON (North Shore)
—New South Wales has experienced an extreme weather event, a natural disaster of epic proportions. As with the bushfires of last year, where would we be without our volunteers? I recognise the dedication of our SES volunteers cross the state, and thank them for their assistance during this past week for the vital role they play in helping our community in times of need. I want to particularly recognise our local SES North Sydney and Mosman Units. North Sydney SES volunteers were on hand to provide assistance to our local community, and thank you to the North Sydney team members who went out to the particularly hard hit areas in Sydney's North West. Mosman SES volunteers responded to calls for assistance ranging from trees coming down, to pumping of subfloors and water diversion with sandbags, as well as some roof jobs. Thank you to all SES volunteers across the state who have helped our communities during the large volumes of rain and flooding, some of the worst we have seen in 60 years. These volunteers take time away from their families and make themselves available to help their community in severe weather events and emergencies.
