SES volunteers come from all walks of life, different backgrounds and professions. But what we have in common is we live in our community and believe we can make a significant difference in a crisis.
If there is an emergency we can:
- Conduct search and rescue
- Deliver essential food and supplies
- Help evacuate people in times of danger
- Install sandbags to guard against flooding
- Secure damaged buildings, and importantly
- Provide information to the community.
In our region we also help with bushfire clean ups and make short-term repairs to homes in the aftermath of storms and cyclones. Becoming a volunteer provides the opportunity to learn new skills from rescue techniques and first aid to map reading, navigation and communications. The SES has much more to offer than simply being an emergency response unit. Currently, we’re recruiting new members. To learn more about becoming a SES volunteer click on Join Us.
