Message for #BNEStorms
Currently only highly trained disaster and emergency experts are involved in the disaster operations. However, in the recovery phase and when it's safe to do so, additional volunteers may be required to support active and approved disaster agencies (Government, NGO's, community groups).
If your availability, location and skills match the organisations' needs – you may be contacted for an opportunity to volunteer, either by Volunteering Queensland or by approved disaster agencies.
Please understand this will be based on the needs of the organisations working closely with the affected communities and that you will only be contacted if needed.
We encourage potential volunteers, when safe to do so, to help their family, friends and neighbours, first and foremost. Thereafter, support should be offered to group/associations the individual already has.
We really value your offer to help. Thanks again.
