As recovery efforts continue in Queensland in the wake of storms and floods, Victoria is lending a hand by sending crews to MacKay.

20 personnel from the Department of Health and Human Services fly to Queensland today.

They’re the first of 200 emergency recovery personnel who’ll be on the ground across the next eight weeks.

Emergency Management Commissioner Craig Lapsley says the crews will assist in a number of ways.

‘It’s all about getting communities to understand the services that we may need to get them access to,’ Mr Lapsley told 3AW News.

‘Assistance with the way in which they operate in the local community, including how they’re going with insurance companies.

‘Some of the administration of what people need to do post emergency.’
