Fourth ACT taskforce to head interstate

The ACT will send a fourth taskforce of volunteers interstate to assist in recovery operations following the New South Wales weather crisis.

The 25 member ACT State Emergency Service (ACTSES) crew will depart from the ACT Emergency Services Agency headquarters at Fairbairn tomorrow at 11:30am.

They'll travel to Newcastle to be tasked by the NSWSES to work in the Hunter region over the weekend before returning on Monday evening.
