SeaLink update - Kangaroo Island bushfires
Our hearts go out to all those who have been impacted by the bushfires, including our own employees who live and work on the Island. We want to acknowledge the dedication, efforts and bravery of firefighters and emergency services personnel. We also thank all SeaLink employees who are working hard to support our customers and the community during this difficult time.
Our priority has been, and continues to be, supporting emergency services with the transportation of essential support personnel, supplies and services. Additional ferry services have been operating throughout the night to ensure urgent delivery requirements can be met.
SeaLink understands there are many people whose homes, properties and businesses have been destroyed. As part of this package we wish to support those directly impacted and by providing free ferry travel to the value of $2,000 per property to assist with their recovery. Community members can email KIsupport@sealink.com.au.
We also recognise that at times like this, family and friends can provide amazing help and support to those affected. SeaLink will also provide free ferry passenger fares to the family and friends of Kangaroo Island residents through to the end of January. More information can be obtained by calling SeaLink on 131 301.
We understand the vital importance of tourism to the Kangaroo Island community. As part of longer-term recovery efforts, we are working with the South Australia Tourism Commission and other partners on a campaign to encourage visitors to get behind the local community by continuing to visit Kangaroo Island.
These bushfires have been devastating for everyone on Kangaroo Island. All of us at SeaLink are committed to supporting the local community in its recovery, now and in the longer-term.
