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.

How to access disaster support

The Salvation Army offers a range of services and assistance measures to help people who have been impacted by bushfires including:

  • Financial assistance
  • Emotional wellbeing and support services
  • Information, referrals and advice.

For enquiries, The Salvation Army Disasters Assistance team can be contacted by emailing or by calling 1300 662 217

The Salvation Army is working with State and Local government to determine the best way to provide support to affected communities. Information on this page will continue to be updated as it becomes available.
