The recent floods experienced by Townsville, where one years rainfall fell in seven days, has devastated the community. The response by the City of Townsville and the first responders was nothing short of herculean and resulted in no loss of life. Now, several weeks after the event, the community is slowly getting back on its’ feet. There are, however, many people whose homes remain uninhabitable and who have suffered a total loss of property and personal effects. Team Rubicon Australia is assisting the community of Townsville through the provision of Disaster Support Teams who remain in action helping home occupiers to take the first steps to reclaiming their homes and regaining their hope.
Here the CEO of Team Rubicon Australia, Geoff Evans, discusses the disaster relief response with the Governor General, His Excellency Sir Peter Cosgrove AK MC.
