Flood Safety Advice:
In life threatening emergencies, call 000 (triple zero) immediately. If you require rescue, assistance to evacuate or other emergency help, ring NSW SES on 132 500.
* Avoid drowning. Stay out of rising water, seek refuge in the highest available place.

* Avoid being swept away. Stay out of fast-flowing creeks and storm drains.
* Never drive, ride or walk-through flood water. Flood water can be deceptive and dangerous.
