Port Macquarie has escaped relatively unscathed after a weekend of strong winds, cooler temperatures and high seas.
While there was limited damage to property, SES Port Macquarie unit commander Michael Ward said the volunteers still attended a number of jobs on the weekend.
"We had a total of just seven jobs on the weekend," he said.
"These started on Saturday with a garage door being blown in with the strong wind.
"Our members reattached the door and secured the garage.
"Volunteers then attended six tree jobs on Sunday which included branches hung over pedestrian walkways right through to trees on the road.
"A timber fence was also blown over and a tree was threatening a house."
Mr Ward said Port Macquarie-Hastings Council and Roads and Maritime Service crews helped clear trees from roads.
In a separate incident, the SES was called to rescue a security guard at 3am after he was trapped in a lift.
Mr Ward praised SES volunteers for fulfilling their role of saving lives and protecting the community.
"This weekend also served as a reminder for people to secure loose objects around their home, to clean their gutters and have any dangerous trees assessed by an arborist," he added.
Marine Rescue Port Macquarie reported that just one craft went over the bar on Sunday, before returning just 50 minutes later.
