Hey all, couple of us on here are wanting to help out this weekend and have heard that 4wd's are needed. Have looked on the volunteer website but can't really find anything.

Anybody got any info where we might be able to find out.

Cheers

Stay out of the water mate!!!!

Your vehicle is as good as uninsured if you go near a road covered in water. Insurance companies have already begun advising people that their insurance is VOID if they did not take reasonable steps to ensure their vehicles are kept away from still flood water!

He didn't mention anything about water?
I remember hearing that they need high clearance 4wd volunteers for something in more out of the way places, I would guess it's cause the roads are damaged and not passable in a car?

I am merely pointing out that due to this event now being a natural disaster any flood protection in our policies could be voided and to not risk driving through water.

All good guys, don't plan on driving through deep water. Not putting ourselves at risk. Just wanna help out and remember hearing this somewhere.

Every cloud has a silver lining somewhere...

How much ammo will this give the 4WD fraternity in future battles with bureaucracy if they get a big roll up of Volly's helping out... and from Joe Public who is the one getting the help.

IF you do turn up to help for Gods sake be safe tho, and Yom is right, just 'cause your helping doesn't mean your insurer will help you if something goes pear shaped.

I joined the S.E.S years ago and commend it or similar volly groups (RFS, St Johns, Salvos)
