https://www.facebook.com/ACurrentAffair9/posts/2749407401832286 Did you catch ACA on Saturday 2nd May? This story on our grey shirts and our partnership with Mindaroo was filmed as we underwent Mission Ryan in Cobargo.  

Operations suspended to comply with government recommendations for COVID-19

Members and friends, Nothing is more important to us than your safety. Following recent announcements by the State and Federal Governments aimed at reducing the spread of COVID-19 and upon feedback from disaster affected communities, we here at Team Rubicon Australia...
I first heard about Team Rubicon Australia through friends who had gone on deployments. I am not a veteran but I really wanted to ‘give it a go’ and help out those less fortunate than me.
Even though I am a civilian, I felt really confident with Team Rubicon Australia. My boss is super supportive about me deploying and having that support at home makes all the difference. Kangaroo Island is my second deployment and I have felt welcomed by the TRA teams at both Willawarrin and Kangaroo Island.
I am not afraid of hard work, and I like being a team player, both skills have been really
useful with TRA. There is definitely enough hard work to go around!
The most moving thing for me has been the happiness of the people we help, how grateful they are.
Here on Kangaroo Island, I really connected with the owner of the local quad bike business. His
business had really taken a hit in the bushfires, with almost all of his bikes destroyed when his shed
burned down. We got the ball rolling on his recovery by diving in to start the cleanup. Our help
wasn’t just physical, it was emotional too, letting him know that someone cared.
