ADF finishes flood support in NSW

1 December 2022

ADF established Operation Flood Assist 22-2 on October 17 as part of the Australian Government's response to flooding in NSW and Victoria.

Personnel supported emergency authorities in assisting affected communities. Support broadly comprises flood-preparation activities such as sand bagging, welfare checks, evacuation support, transport, logistics resupply, access assistance and initial recovery (including clean-up) support.

The ADF continues to work closely with National Emergency Management Australia in monitoring potential floods across the community. 

The ADF remains postured to provide additional support to State Emergency Services should a request be received via National Emergency Management Australia.
