The Operations Division of the Department of Infrastructure is deploying its emergency control room at Ellerslie for the next 24 hours to deal with the incoming storm later this afternoon. Seven 2-man teams will be deployed until midnight when they will be replaced with a second shift of 14 workers.

In addition to this further staff are available to be called on if required. Arrangements have also been made with the Forestry Division of the Department of Environment Food & Agriculture (DEFA) should additional resources be required. Key contacts have been established with the MEA and the Fire and Rescue Service for operational requirements during the storm.

The teams tonight will have a wide range of resources available to them including drain cleaning equipment (jetters), cranes, hoists, chainsaws, pumps, sweepers and a range of heavy plant such as excavators.
