Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS - Ali­son Bald­ing

TREGEAR res­i­dent Lalomilo Tau­veve is set to fea­ture in a tele­vi­sion se­ries called which pre­mieres this Satur­day on Chan­nel 10.

The six-week se­ries looks be­hind the scenes of the tire­less work of NSW SES vol­un­teers.

Mr Tau­veve, who is part of the Mt Druitt NSW SES Unit, said he was sur­prised to stum­ble across cam­eras when his crew re­sponded to calls for help dur­ing the freak storms which hit the area in April.

“I haven’t ex­actly got a head for TV but I sup­pose it (the show) will be a good way for the com­mu­nity to see what we do,” Mr Tau­veve, a fa­ther of four, said.

“Most peo­ple are well aware of the dan­gers posed by se­vere weather and are pre­pared, but there are still many who need to do more to pre­pare for storms,” he said.

The launch of the TV se­ries comes as the NSW SES and NRMA In­sur­ance urge res­i­dents to get ready for an­other busy storm sea­son.

“Storm sea­son pre­dom­i­nantly oc­curs be­tween Oc­to­ber and March, but dan­ger­ous weather can oc­cur at any time of the year,” NSW SES Com­mis­sioner Adam Dent said.
