THE NSW State Emergency Service (SES) Bathurst unit has been responding to calls for assistance in the Bathurst and Lithgow areas due to storms in recent days.
While not hit as hard as other parts of NSW, Bathurst and Lithgow have been subject to strong winds and heavy rain at times that has caused damage.
Duty officer Zeak Smith said call-outs were mainly in relation to fallen trees and leaking roofs.
The Bathurst SES also responded to a single-vehicle accident on Lagoon Road on Thursday and provided assistance to other emergency services.
While some people have called the SES for help during the recent storms, there are others who have been hesitant about getting in contact or choose not to.
Mr Smith said people should still reach out, regardless of the incident.
"We get a lot of that; people get concerned that there are others more in need than them," he said.
"We try to tell people to call and we will prioritise the jobs."
There is still the possibility of more rain and storms in the coming days, and so the Bathurst SES members are making preparations to ensure they can respond if required.

Mr Smith said part of the preparations is checking that there are enough supplies and consulting with the membership.
There is also the possibility that Bathurst members may get called away to other parts of NSW to support efforts following flooding and storm damage.
"It is certainly something that may happen, but because the storm systems are so wide spread, we are focusing on covering our area first," he said.
Should there been any incidents over the coming days, people are encouraged to ring the SES on 132 500.
Mr Smith said that a notification will be sent to the Bathurst unit and personnel will be assembled within five to 10 minutes.
However, if it is a life-threatening emergency, people should call triple-0 for assistance first.
