Mud Army

Brisbane City Council plays a major role in managing the impacts of disasters in our region and works closely with Volunteering Queensland to ensure our Mud Army can activate as soon as possible, when needed. 

Brisbane’s Mud Army are volunteers who respond to the call to clean up the city in times of severe weather recovery.

This spontaneous volunteering effort has been acknowledged around the world as a leading example of how communities can band together in times of crisis.

Register to volunteer

Council partners with Volunteering Queensland to stand up the Mud Army.

We encourage those who may want to support the community in times of disaster or floods to register with Volunteering Queensland’s Emergency Volunteering CREW.

This is the best way to ensure that we can contact you and efficiently allocate you to disaster recovery efforts if another flood occurs and a Mud Army is stood up.
