If you or anyone you know of has some residual cleanup which they want a hand with, please call 0800 327 646 (0800 FARMING), then select the Flood Event Assistance option (currently option 2).
The call will then be diverted to someone who will record the details and pass these on to the ETFG coordinator. While this number is the 0800 number for Federated Farmers, you do not need to be a Federated Farmers member to access ETFG.
Enhanced Taskforce Green provides for the employment of workers, supervisors and associated costs to assist farmers with cleanup of flood related debris and damage on-farm. This cleanup assistance does not include heavy machinery (for example, diggers or crushers). But it may be useful for clearing an area prior, getting rid of the debris that’s been sitting there which hasn’t been a priority to date, or preparing a fenceline for re-fencing (ie, they have a post borer).
