Tasmanian Bushfires: Concerned members of the public wanting to help

We all want to do something to help those affected by the extreme weather around the state; but right now, Tasmania’s emergency services are responding.

Please stay away from the affected areas and help keep the roads clear for emergency vehicles. No additional assistance is required from volunteers at this time but your help may be needed once the local communities’ situation has been assessed.

When it’s safe, volunteers may be required to support approved organisations involved in the recovery.

Register your interest with Emergency Volunteering CREW (Community Response to Extreme Weather) and you may be matched to an organisation involved in the disaster recovery.

You will be contacted if and when your availability, location and skills are needed. But be patient, it might take weeks or months as the needs of the local community are gauged and recovery programs begin.

Register for EV CREW today at register.emergencyvolunteering.com.au.   It’s an effective and safe way to help your community.
