The program

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.

The opportunity

Red Cross Emergency Services assist individuals, households and communities to prepare for, respond to and recover from emergencies in South Australia and across Australia. During and after an emergency, volunteers provide Psychological First Aid to people affected by a disaster, either in a recovery & relief centre or via outreach. If sent on interstate activation, responsibilities and tasks may need to be adjusted to requirements and scope of Red Cross operating in another State or Territory. A driver’s license is desirable.
