Spontaneous Emergency & Recovery Volunteer - Murray River Floods SA

Volunteering SA&NT

Volunteering SA&NT manages the registration and referral of spontaneous volunteers for South Australia. When preparing for, and after a disaster is over, volunteers may be required to assist. Volunteering SA&NT is currently working with agencies to ascertain their needs for volunteers.

In the short term volunteers may help with sandbagging, external and internal clean up, transport, administration or tasks that require specialist skills. However emergency preparedness and recovery can last weeks, months or years and volunteers may be needed in the long term to assist with a variety of tasks such as building and environment restoration activities, or supporting community service organisations experiencing an increase in demand for services.

Your details from this expression of interest will be sent directly to agencies that require volunteers.

Please note: All agencies will do their best to ensure that volunteers will operate in a safe environment, however all volunteers need to understand that they will be operating in a declared emergency situation.
