Disaster Relief Australia won a community resilience grant in 2020 to provide AIIMS and IMT training to members of the community including DRA members to better prepare them for leadership roles in future disasters.

FSA holds a current contract with AFAC who are the custodian of the Australasian Inter-service Incident Management System (AIIMS), an integral part of emergency management doctrine for the fire and emergency services industry in Australia.

The system enables Australian agencies to come together to resolve incidents through an integrated and effective response. Through the application of AIIMS in training, exercising and incident response, people from fire and emergency services, government, not-for-profit agencies and industry have been able to build trust and confidence in each other’s ability to work together and effectively manage the most challenging of incidents.

AIIMS 2017 is the national incident management doctrine for fire and emergency services, and for a growing number of private and public sector organisations. The 22459VIC Course in Australasian Inter-service Incident Management System is a 16-hour (2 Day) program that focuses on training the principles of AIIMS.

It is a key requirement for organisations and individuals that seek training in AIIMS principles. This course supports a consistent national approach to training personnel, and is specified within AFAC’s Professionalisation Scheme.

• AIIMS Principles and underpinning concepts

    Disaster Relief Australia has launched a flood recovery operation dubbed Operation ELLIOT to the Port Macquarie area. The operation will bring vital flood recovery to a community still recovering from the Black Summer bushfires of 2019. The operation will deploy for 8 weeks and is initially based in the North Haven area supporting local areas of North Haven, Dunbogan, Kendall and Kew. This initial posture will leverage strong support from both Club North Haven and the Laurieton United Services Club. Jobs include general flood clean-up activities such as damaged structure clearance of furniture and damaged walls, anti-mould operations, debris management and removal, chainsaw operations, fence line repairs, aerial damage assessments. DRA brings help and hope to communities devastated by natural disasters and at the same time provides veterans the opportunity to grow beyond their military service. Disaster Relief Australia CEO Geoff Evans says “DRA has received a warm welcome from the local community who have united together quickly after the recent floods to bring about a relative sense of normalcy. Still, hundreds of homes have been declared unlivable. Our volunteers will roll up their sleeves and provide real hands-on help where it is needed.” Operation Elliot is named after Major Alban Charles Elliot, a war hero awarded the Military Cross and who served as longest running mayor of Port Macquarie from 1925 until 1936.
