Narrabri SES has been busy with flood work in recent days.

Since Saturday the Narrabri SES has undertaken 130 assistance jobs.

SES unit commander, Narrabri, Sarah Rushton, said SES and other agencies had been busy sandbagging premises ahead of the rising waters, mainly in Doyle Street.

“At 12.30pm on Saturday we had a flood rescue on Killarney Gap Road and another at 6.30pm on Saturday night,” she said.

“Three adults and two children were stranded between creek crossings on Bald Hill Road.

‘It took a long time to get them because of the water but after six hours we managed to get an RFS truck there and got them out.

“We had 10 Narrabri and four Wee Waa SES at work.

“From 3pm the work really started ramping up as the water rose.”

The SES worked with the VRA, NSW Fire and Rescue and RFS in the flood protection and clean up.

“I had nine teams in the field from all those agencies on Saturday night,” said Sarah.
