18/9/2011 – Storm Damage Response

The Belmont / Vic Park unit responded to three calls for assistance on Sunday the 18th of September.

One was a large branch that had broken off a white gum, and fallen across a driveway, blocking the owners car in their carport. A team of 4 used chainsaws for about 2 hours to remove the debris from the driveway.

Another call was for a broken skylight. Upon inspection, the polycarbonate roofing material had become brittle over time and had cracked in places. The team used silicon to fill the cracks and placed sandbags to prevent the sheets from lifting.

The third call was for a fallen down fence.
