    Volunteering NT - Emergency Volunteers for Emergency Response

    Volunteers play an important role natural disasters happen. They provide assistance in emergencies such as cyclones, earthquakes, fires or floods and with so many people wanting to help, volunteering is one way of providing that support. Spontaneous Emergency Volunteers are often available, but unprepared to be easily deployed into response, relief and recovery agencies and emergency management agencies where help is needed the most. A new program managed by Volunteering NT allows Darwin residents to pre-register to assist community organisations and agencies in times such as these.
