In Response to: Bushfire Recovery
Location: Rosedale, Qld
Active: Oct 14, 2020
ObjectiveDisaster Relief Australia, (DRA) launched a Type 4 bushfire recovery operation in the SW area of the Gladstone Regional Council LGA, on the 14th of October 2020.
In November/December 2018, a bushfire originating from Deepwater, Queensland southwest of Gladstone raged through the region for 2 weeks. The community lost 25 homes, multiple outbuildings and incurred significant stock losses. Locals sustained a fatality and countless injuries while fighting to save their properties. The fires burnt more than 75,000 hectares in and around the villages of Rosedale, Miriam Vale, Lowmead, Baffle Creek & Mount Maria.
Twenty months post bushfires, some community members still remain without power and continue to reside in makeshift dwellings. Disaster Relief Australia is dedicated to come back into the community to provide recovery works including debris removal, chainsaw work & repairs to fence lines.
