Disaster Volunteer Register

Register to Volunteer During an Emergency

As seen in the events across Western Downs and Queensland during the 2010/2011 summer, in a natural event or emergency situation, the community pulls together to assist one another to recover. You can volunteer to assist your community in a natural event by simply completing the form below. Please ensure you specify how you are able to assist (i.e. cooking at an evacuation centre, assisting with clean up hosing/sweeping etc..)

Alternatively, you can contact 1300 COUNCIL (1300 268 624) and register your name, phone number and how you are able to assist.

Being on the Volunteer Register places you under no obligation. While working as a registered Council Volunteer, as an individual, you would be covered under Council’s Volunteer insurance policy.
