Rush to protect homes

STATE Emergency Services and other volunteers from around the city spent the morning shovelling sand into bags for Toowoomba residents to help protect their homes.

The car park on the corner of Ruthven and Spring streets was full of cars lined up with owners wanting to protect their homes.

Pittsworth SES volunteer Neil Miles said they had given residents more than 2500 sandbags and expected to be there for the rest of the day.

“We’ll be here until we’re not needed anymore,” he said.

“I don’t see things improving though; I think we’re going to be here for a while yet.”
