Drawn to help – first responder Hez

Disaster Relief Australia | November 2020

hez reflection operation turnerI first joined Disaster Relief Australia nearly two years ago but it wasn’t until the devastating 2019 fires on the NSW Mid North Coast that I deployed for the first time. I have an emergencies services background and with so many people in need, I felt drawn to help.

At first I was apprehensive, not knowing what the people would be like but everyone was so helpful and friendly, and I obviously had a great time as I am now back and onto my fourth deployment!
