On Saturday 23/2/19 your President had a huge healthy tree come down in his backyard. The property's backyard faces Wyong Rd  Before he noticed it was down Austgrid were passing, attended the site & disconnected the power from the broken street light on the pole that was holding the tree up off the road. 
Our member phoned SES & although not life threatening at the time, if the pole snapped, someone in a passing vehicle could have been seriously hurt or killed. Within the hour 2 people from SES were onsite to assess the situation & organise the task of making the area safe for everyone. Together with Austgrid the area was made safe & SES returned on Sunday morning to finish the job.
These people are all volunteers, on call 24/7 & do not get enough recognition or thanks for the outstanding work they do.

On behalf of Bateau Bay Men's Shed & the Men's Shed movement we want to thank you all for keeping us safe whenever an emergency arises. 

 Your efforts are virtually priceless to the Community
