SES scam warning

FOLLOWING the recent storm damage, the State Emergency Service is reminding residents they do not charge money to make temporary repairs, cut up dangerous trees or those blocking access or on a home.

The SES has had reports of contractors saying the SES has sent them and asking for money.

"We do not do that. If the SES arranges for a tree contractor, which we may do, there is no cost to the householder," the SES has said.

"If you have concerns you are being scammed, please check with the police or call 132 500 and report the matter to us."
