A nine-year-old boy has been rolling up his sleeves to help with Victoria’s storm cleanup by dragging branches off the road and giving weather reports – all while wearing his own personalised SES shirt.
Judd Feeney from Mooney Ponds in Melbourne is obsessed with the SES and wears his SES t-shirt every day.
The storms and floods that hit the state last week inspired him to lend a hand and step up his “rescue training” so he can join the Essendon unit of the SES when he turns 15.
Along with clearing roads, Judd also records weather warning videos for the locals.
“This is Judd Feeney from SES. There’s a branch, you see? So don’t go on Maribyrnong Reserve,” he said in one video.
“Be safe. Thank you very much. Bye.”
In a second video, he warns Victorians of heavy winds and tells those in Traralgon to be on the lookout for crocodiles and hippos in floodwaters.
“Please don’t go through floodwater and take action now to protect your home,” he says in the video.
Judd recently met one of his heroes, Kevin from the VICSES Essendon Unit.
