SES Flood Bulletin Distribution System

By For Home Page, Uncategorized

The NSW State Emergency Service, South Eastern Zone, provides an automated Flood Bulletin distribution system to improve notification of flood impacts and consequences to the public.

Bulletins are automatically sent by SMS, fax or email whenever a Flood Bulletin is issued or updated for the nominated river system. Unfortunately, the Picton CBD is a designated flash flooding environment so the SES can’t issue detailed Flood Bulletins for this area because the warning time is so short. We do share Bureau of Meteorology flash flood warnings, and issue community newsletters and Evacuation Warnings and Orders for the area. We would like to use our distribution system to issue these to people who live in the Picton CBD. This service is offered free of charge to private residents, commercial and industrial businesses, rural and agricultural landholders. When you register, you nominate your preferred distribution method. The distribution database is managed by the NSW SES South Eastern Zone. Any information collected by us is only used for the distribution of official information and will not be given to any third party. Users are responsible to advise us should their nominated contact details change and may opt out at any time. Users need to be aware that they we will endeavour to send all official communications issued during a severe weather event for the Picton CBD, and these may be sent at odd hours of the day and night. Should you require any additional information about this service, please don’t hesitate to contact us at [email protected]

What Did You Miss?

Wednesday Evening 23rd September 2020

Pizza in the Shed

Mowbray Park Farm

Address:  745 Barkers Lodge Road, Picton, NSW, 2571.

We had a full house at Mowbray Park Farm Wednesday night. Blair Briggs hosted the evening meeting and updated us on the upgrades to the Mowbray Farm while the tourist and accommodation industry has been in lockdown these past six months. Our guest speaker from Appin Chamber of Commerce, Lauren Eade, informed members of a new initiative being implemented by Appin Chamber to promote shopping locally in Wollondilly. Lauren has a team working on a promotional website that will double as a business directory for Wollondilly businesses. It will incentivise shoppers with gift prizes awarded monthly to shoppers patronising local businesses. Shoppers can enter a draw for a prize after purchasing items from participating businesses. The site is expected to become a hub for future Wollondilly business activity and the concept was warmly embraced by members.

Other items on the agenda was the announcement of various events for 2020-21 which will be posted on our events page as details become available.

The Picton Chamber of Commerce is eager to expand membership and share our experiences and professional expertise and learn from your business experiences too.
