“collies who gave day jobs”

God, my typing on a phone sucks!

Just to highlight that this means 63 SES personnel (roughly a quarter of the service) have now deployed since Jan. ACTSES has also maintained full capabilities in Canberra at this time, as demonstrated by our ability to put lots of teams in the field since Wed night to deal with trees and storm issues here (there are still tree jobs coming in this morning).

Not bad for a bunch of collies who gave day jobs (and our employers, families etc…)
