One Association - Many Values

Welcome to:

The SES Volunteers Association of Western Australia Incorporated (SESVA)

(A prescribed Association for SES Volunteers in WA)

"one Association many issues"



Welcome to the website of the State Emergency Service Volunteers Association of Western Australia Incorporated (SESVA)The SESVA was formed in the late 1980’s with the objective of providing a focus for representing the views of SES Volunteers on issues which affect them.  The SESVA has developed the ability to strongly voice the opinion of the volunteers  where, when necessary, to the benefit of all the Volunteers of the SES, where the action of a single Volunteer or small group would not be as effective.  The SESVA represents SES volunteers on a number of committees and working groups and has regular meetings with DFES.


SESVA role is to represent the views of SES Volunteers to all levels of Government, DFES and other agencies on all matters affecting  SES volunteers and the way in which we serve our communities.

SESVA Objectives & Current Activities

Current News Items

The Norseman SES received $3000 from the Woolworths - SESVA fundraising program held at Easter 2013. The Volunteers decided to buy a Large Smart TV for our Collocation Building training room. The 70 inch Sony unit is a huge step forward from the old projector we had, which was not up to scratch for our ongoing training and operational needs.  The attached picture (see below) is of Bevan Bailye, Local Manager Norseman SES and our Guest Instructor, Ant Rees at the end of our recent Manage Injuries course held 24/25 Sep 2016.

This is a great result from the SESVA and Woolworths and we feel this has made a huge contribution towards our endeavours to serve the Norseman Community.


The WA SES History was launched at the recent DFES conference as an ebook, as edition 1. If more information comes forward to fill the many gaps, then it is hoped that the second edition will be a paper copy. Each SES delegate who attended the conference was given a copy of the e book on a USB stick.  The e book contains information of the SES going back to its formation.  So how to get your copy of the History of the SES, well simply ask  the conference delegate from your unit to give you access the USB stick and download it to your computer.
