Canning South Perth SES had a busy May with a severe storm hitting the metro area on the 21 May 2016. We responded from the early hours of Saturday morning and continued into Sunday with over 30 requests for assistance.

We attended jobs ranging from trees down to multiple roofs that had sustained damage and where letting water in. The operations team did a great job to receipt all the tasks, process and allocate them to the teams. A great job by all members who gave up their weekend to assist the community!

A timely reminder now that winter has come, for all homeowners to ensure they remain up to date with all storm warnings and by aware of responding volunteer emergency services after any storm event.
