Emergency Response

Velco is available to be oncall for when a natural disaster or major storm event hits to promptly move staff, plant and equipment to the hazard site and commence site clean up,and restoration.

In 2013 Velco was utilised for the Bundaberg flood cleanup and  restoration works to assist Bundaberg Regional Council after the devastating effects and damage of recent flood damage to the community. During this time Velco mobilised 65 items of plant and equipment in 42 hours of notification to start the clean up works in the Bundaberg Region. Velco uitlised items such as Tippers, Posi tracks, Excavators and supervision to perform the works. 

Velco was requested to work a 24 hour a day roster to rehabilitate the Northern Suburbs of Bundaberg to enable residence to move back into their flood effected homes. After the flood was cleaned up Bundaberg Regional council had high praise of the work that was completed during the flood and the productivity that was achieved during such a small time frame. Velco is very proud of the work that was completed on this project and the opportunity to work with Bundaberg Regional council.

Velco was also contracted by local councils, insurance companies, government departments and power supply companies to assist in the clean up after Cyclone Yasi in 2011 – a Category 5 cyclone which struck North Queensland this year leaving devastating effects on the community and major infrastructure.
