Team Status


Welcome to Eastern Community Assistance Team

Eastern Community Assistance Team or EA-CAT (pronounced 'ee'-cat) is a registered charity consisting solely of volunteers, who in times of major incidents and severe weather are available to be called upon by the Emergency Services or Local Emergency Planning Dept. to use our all-terrain capable vehicles to get to locations they cannot, and to assist communities wherever possible.

We can help during times of flooding with sandbagging, passenger and/or load carrying duties, and our trained members will, when tasked, attempt to get to you either in conjunction with, or when the emergency services are not able to, transporting you to a safe location.

We also marshal events for other charities and organisations such as the St Elizabeth Hospice 'Midnight Walk' and St Nicholas Hospice 'Girls Night Out.

There is more information about what we do on the 'About us' page.

As a purely voluntary group, we receive no funding from any government bodies. We rely solely on the support of our volunteer members and donations from the public - without them EA-CAT could not exist.

We can provide a service when a well-organised group is needed during adverse conditions.

Any time, any day, EA-CAT can help.
