The Australian Defence Force (ADF) is working with Emergency Management Australia to support the firefighting efforts in New South Wales and Queensland. Defence has placed liaison officers in the State Disaster Coordination Centre (SDCC) and with New South Wales Rural Fire Service Headquarters. Additionally, the ADF is providing transport support to the firefighting effort and is postured to provide other capabilities such as aviation, logistics, engineering and accommodation support. Defence is continuing with work to ensure arrangements are in place to allow call out of Reservists to support significant national emergencies if required to supplement ADF regular personnel.
