2019 November Bushfires
The Salvation Army’s Emergency Services (SAES) teams are responding to the devastating bushfires in New South Wales, Queensland, and most recently South Australia.
Our SAES teams have been activated at multiple locations, with a number of teams on standby ready to activate should they be required at other evacuation centres.
Salvation Army teams have been providing meals to evacuees and frontline responders, and will continue to provide whatever support is needed as the situation continues.
For our Salvos Emergency Services to be active at this many locations at one time in one region is unprecedented. Our thoughts and prayers are with those who have been affected by these devastating fires.
