The State Emergency Service (SES) is a volunteer emergency service organisation established under an Act of Parliament to render immediate assistance during emergencies and disasters, to provide community response to 'day to day' incidents such as vehicle accidents, searches, cliff rescues, flood and storm damage situations and any other incidents that might require rescue or search services. The SES also cooperates closely with other statutory emergency services. SES has storm and flood relief as responsibilities in State legislation. The SES is part of a national network of similar services in each State and Territory around Australia. More than 1,500 SES Volunteers are members of 67 Units across South Australia.
