SES volunteers play an important part in helping their communities during emergencies. While the primary role is to respond to incidents involving floods and storms, road crash rescue, land search and rescue; there are also support roles which contribute to the overall management of the unit including business and administration support, logistics and communications.

There are 67 units located all around the state so there’s bound to be one near you!


About this opportunity:

Depending on your role, you will be requested to respond to emergency incidents which can be during the day or night as the SES provides emergency response to the community 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

SES values all skill levels and diversity, including but not limited to, age, gender, culture and ability. If you have the motivation then SES can help you see yourself in orange and live the volunteer experience.
