Fill your own sandbags to prepare for storm season

FRASER Coast SES groups will hold open days for residents wanting sandbags to prepare for the storm season.

Fraser Coast councillor Rolf Light said shovels, sand and bags would be supplied.

In Maryborough, people can head to the SES shed on Tuesday, December 9, from 8am to 12.30pm.

The Tiaro SES sandbag day will be held on Saturday, December 13, from 8.30am to 3.30pm.

The Hervey Bay SES will be open for residents to fill sandbags on Monday mornings from 8am.

"While we hope residents don't have to use the sandbags, it is better to be prepared," Cr Light said.
