Emergency service

The Stokes Valley Times
January 1962

An emergency team was called into operation throughout the night of the flooding last Saturday. The council had six men continually on duty clearing what blockages they could and ready for worse trouble.

The Fire Brigade maintained radio watch when the power went off, and also stood by for emergencies or rescues at the request of the Police.

The council alerted contractors and had a pool of heavy machinery ready for action, some of which was assembled at the foot of Manor Drive, and kept the Eastern Hutt Road cleared.

One or two local truck operators ran a voluntary rescue service for pedestrians stranded on the wrong side of minor street flooding.
