SES Volunteer's Association of Western Australia Incorporated

One Association - Many Values

15/04/2024 – New SESVA Sub-committee


The Media and PR Strategy team held its first meeting on 21st March 2024. The team will meet 3 or 4 times a year with the aim of developing strategies to build a positive public perception, enhance community awareness, and ensure recognition of SES volunteers.

By doing so, the SESVA contributes to the overall success and effectiveness of the SES in serving the community before, during and after an emergency.

Some of the strategies that the Team will be focusing on include:

  • Social Media Management
  • Internal Communication
  • Stakeholder Engagement
  • Public Awareness Campaigns
  • Reputation Management
  • Media Liaison
  • Heritage Collection
  • Member Benefits


We’re hoping to recruit some other dynamic volunteers to complete the team. The current members are:

  • Allen Gale ESM, SESVA Secretary – Chairman
  • Leonie Briggs, SES Canine unit, SESVA Vice President – Deputy Chair
  • Megan Reynolds, Mandurah SES, SESVA Committee Member
  • John Capes OAM, SESVA Webmaster
  • Cassidy Kempster, Northshore SES
  • Rob Philips, Margaret River SES unit
