Register to be a Ready Reserve volunteer

The Community Recovery Ready Reserve is a group of government employee volunteers that assist with disaster recovery. Volunteers are sent into a disaster area once emergency responders have declared it safe and suitable for recovery operations to begin.

Volunteers focus on human and social recovery. They:

  • provide people with information
  • connect people with support services
  • take applications from eligible householders for financial assistance grants.

To become a Ready Reserve volunteer, you must gain manager approval, complete the registration process, and undertake a mandatory online learning program.
