In Response to: Bushfire Recovery
Location: Batlow, NSW
Active: Jul 17, 2020
ObjectiveDisaster Relief Australia deployed a reconnaissance team to the Snowy Valleys Council Local Government Area in order to assist the recovery of communities. Their mission was to assess the viability of sending a full operational deployment later in the year.
Whilst maintaining a careful eye on the covid19 situation, DRA continues planning to assess the viability of a return to field operations in NSW. As the situation changes, we continue to evolve our COVID safe plans to ensure that when the time comes, we can deploy members safely and ensure the safety of community members whilst still achieving maximum effect on the ground.
If the operation goes ahead, it will include tree felling and cross-cut chainsaw work, debris
clean-up and community facilities improvements.
