Sunday 27 Feb, 2022

EV CREW has not been officially activated to provide volunteer assistance in flood relief effort.

Volunteer efforts are best when coordinated in a safe way for the volunteer and the person receiving assistance. 

Due to the nature of the weather occurrence and the immediate threat to safety, we ask that volunteers do not attend evacuation centres, councils, and other sites until an official call has been requested. We also ask that volunteers do not put themselves at risk in helping others. While these offers of assistance are commendable, having vast numbers of volunteers unexpectedly attend emergency facilities or require assistance as a result of placing themselves in harm’s way can place additional burden on the emergency response and those impacted by the disaster.  

Volunteering Queensland through its EV CREW program partners with the Queensland Government to register and manage offers of assistance to volunteer at times of and in the aftermath of emergencies and disasters. Volunteers may be needed once the threat to safety has passed, and it is safe for volunteers to be called upon. As the water recedes, and the extent of the event has been realised, those communities impacted by the disaster will require immediate,  short to longer term support recovery efforts.   Please consider volunteering at these times.

To be informed of opportunities to volunteer and assist at times of disaster please register with Volunteering Queensland’s EV CREW.  They will keep you informed on if and when additional volunteer help is required. 

We commend those that have supported their friends, neighbours, and relatives to date.  At this crucial time, we encourage volunteers to listen to authorities for warnings and updates and help neighbours, friends and family only if it is safe to do so.

Local Government Authorities that require advice, support and assistance in their volunteer response are encouraged to contact Volunteering Queensland EV CREW service either by calling 3002 7600 or emailing This email address is being protected from spambots.
