The SES volunteers are a dedicated group of people drawn from all walks of life, all backgrounds and all professions. All have a common desire to make a contribution within the community by offering emergency assistance. These volunteers make themselves available to be called out to emergencies, without payment, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week as and when required. Western Australians benefit every time an SES volunteer responds to an emergency. It is a proud record that SES volunteers have saved the lives and property of countless Western Australians.
