Emergency volunteering involved short-term responses to natural disasters and other emergencies.
In Queensland, recent events that have involved large amounts of emergency volunteers include the 2011 Queensland Floods and Cyclone Yasi disasters.
Volunteering Queensland has launched a new website called Emergency Volunteering Queensland. On this website you can:
- volunteer to help your community in times of natural disaster,
- check if you are prepared using the disaster readiness resources and checklist,
- download the Ready Qld app, which informs Queenslanders about preparedness for natural disasters and provides updates on emergency volunteering news and current opportunities.
