Red Cross has been responding to emergencies and providing humanitarian assistance in Australia since 1914. We are committed to strengthening and extending our emergency aid services to assist all Australians prepare for, respond to and recover from emergencies.
Emergency Services Volunteer Team Members belong to a multi-skilled team of volunteers, who assist individuals and communities across the emergency management cycle by:
- helping people prepare for possible future emergency events (preparedness)
- providing relief during emergency events (response) and
- assisting in the aftermath of an event (recovery).
In times of emergency, volunteers may be requested to assist in their local area, and across Tasmania. Team members will receive training and exercise opportunities to build capacity to organise, lead and deliver these services in the field.
