I have a friend who is a bilateral CI recipient. She lives up in the Dandenongs in the very outer suburbs of Melbourne. 3 weeks ago that area had a massive cyclonic event. Where strong gale force winds & rain took down trees, power poles. Trees went through house roofs, some roofs are totally missing. Roads were cut off with massive trees blocking them and that area is still without power in some spots. The Army bought in generators to help most and the area is still being cleaned up. All this happened in a Covid lockdown.
My friend was without power for 3 days, once her rechargeable batteries died she had to resort to disposable batteries. Overnight when the gale force winds hit the Dandenongs she didn’t hear a thing. She slept the whole night through, snd woke up to one hell of a mess. Her free standing carport was gone! Once we get through winter we head into bush fire season, the Dandenongs is in the fire zone as well.
What alarm systems does everyone have set up in your home? I’m very slack I don’t have any!
