TEAM RUBICON DISASTER RECOVERY SUPPORT IN NORTH QUEENSLAND

Team Rubicon Australia utilises the skills and experiences of Australian Defence Force veterans to rapidly deploy emergency response teams to disaster zones such as Tathra during the bushfires in 2018.

‘Operation Gordon’ was launched in response to the catastrophic weather events in Townsville and surrounding areas in North Queensland, the most severe to hit the region in recent history.

Since the formation of the Local Disaster Coordination Centre in Townsville, Team Rubicon has supported advanced planning for recovery operations across the region, and now deployed Disaster Response Teams from around Australia, including teams based in Townsville. Team Rubicon are also managing groups of Spontaneous Volunteers on the ground in Townsville, from corporate groups, individuals and humanitarian organisations.
