ACTSES works its way through more rain calls

Share Canberra's trusted news:

THE ACT State Emergency Service is continuing to make its way to hundreds of rain damage incidents across the territory. There are now more than 440. 

ACTSES says calls for assistance have been prioritised based on the information given at the time of call, the risk to the community and the circumstances of the caller.

“If your situation gets worse, please call 132 500 to escalate your need for help,” says ACTSES.

“If you no longer require assistance, please call 132 500 to cancel your request.”

Crews are working hard to attend all calls.
