Only trained Emergency Services volunteers are needed in the initial response phase of a disaster or crisis. If you are interested in volunteering with the emergency services including the Tasmania Fire Service (TFS), State Emergency Services (SES) Ambulance Tasmania and St John Ambulance, sign up through Join, Learn and Be Ready http://www.emergencyvolunteers.tas.gov.au/ so that you can be trained and ready to help in the next emergency.
EV CREW offers assistance in the recovery phase, which may not commence for weeks or even months after an event occurs. Even though this type of assistance may take longer to begin, it is still extremely valuable to the communities rebuilding after terrible events like the recent floods in Tasmania. To help in the recovery phase, register for EV CREW today, and wait til we call on you for help http://emergencyvolunteering.force.com/Register
