WA volunteers, staff to fly east to flood disaster zone

Mark McGowan has promised to send more West Australians across the country to help out with disaster relief in the flood-ravaged eastern states.

As residents in Victoria, Queensland, NSW and Tasmania brace for more damaging storms and flooding, the Premier on Sunday said he would be liaising with Emergency Services Minister Stephen Dawson to make sure WA could provide further assistance.

“We expect tomorrow we’ll be sending a team of people — volunteers and staff — to assist in the eastern states from Western Australia,” he said.

“We’re hopeful of 20 to 40 people heading off initially to assist with the disaster recovery efforts.”
