How to use sandbags

  • by

Email below just received from the City of Mandurah ( a bit late for today’s storm but may be useful in the future). Hope everyone stays safe!!

“The City has been working with the SES and DFES recently to develop a sand bagging guide to assist WA residents in minimising the impact of flooding events.

Please find the newly released Sandbag Guide  linked  (and attached).

This, combined with this sandbagging video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ay-uzfYx8s  may be prove to be valuable resources for low lying Lake Clifton – Herron residents.

We welcome you to share these, to heighten the level of community preparedness and resilience, reducing the impact and number of emergency calls to SES volunteers.

FYI a Severe Weather Warning has been issued today, please visit the BOM website details and updates.

 Thank you in advance.  

Kind regards

Myra Giardini  

 

Coordinator,  Emergency Management
