In Response to: Devastating bushfires
Location: Kangaroo Island, SA
Feb 22, 2020 to Mar 22, 2020
Operation Tiger was an extremely positive yet challenging operation. The operation being located on Kangaroo Island presented its own unique challenges. Through the coordination and joint efforts of our disaster relief teams the forward movement and deployment of personnel was actioned effectively. Wave One set conditions and prepped the AO for ongoing waves, including use of FULCRUM in order to conduct Damage assessments. As the operation continued the scale and magnitude of the COVID-19 pandemic began to take effect. Government restrictions on movement and the phased closing of State borders meant the rapid demobilisation of not only our volunteers but other NGOs in the area was inevitable.
