By purchasing modern new oodvessels with increased rescuecapability, the SES will be ableto focus extra resources in areasaffected by severe oodingwithout diminishing its ability torespond to emergencies in otherparts of the State.The investment will furtherimprove the ability of the 10,000NSW SES volunteers to servethe community across the Stateparticularly in regional areaswhere – as we have seen overrecent months – many experienceisolation and devastation due toheavy rains and ooding.

The Gillard and Keneally Governmentshave activated a package of one-off“Category C Grants” – worth up to$15,000 – under the National DisasterRelief and Recovery Arrangements(NDRAA).The Prime Minister said thegrants would help the many NSWcommunities that are still doing ittough as a result of the oods thatinundated south and north westNSW in November and Decemberof last year.Now that the oodwaters in themajority of places in NSW havesubsided, it has become clear thatmany small businesses and primaryproducers have suffered signicantdisruption to their businesses.These one-off grants will helpminimise the economic impact of theoods in the affected communitiesand help people get back to businessas quickly as possible.“Many primary producers and smallbusinesses have suffered hardshipand disruption from these oods afteryears of drought and this is a way ofhelping them get back on their feet,”NSW Premier Kristina Keneally said.
