The ACT State Emergency Services (ACTSES) thanks the public for their patience as teams respond to jobs across Canberra. If you reported an incident to the ACTSES but the hazard has been cleared or you no longer require assistance please call 132 500.

ACTSES volunteer units have today been supported by ACT Fire & Rescue, ACT Rural Fire Service and Transport Canberra and City Services.

Crews will work until midnight and recommence work at 7am. The Incident Management Team remains in place at ESA HQ.
