News Archive

Welcome to the initial stage of the SES Volunteers Association of WA’s News Archive.

Ever since 2010, the association has published over 1400 news stories on this website.

To make better use of such a valuable resource, the News Archive is being developed to help visitors find and access historical news, relating to SES volunteers.

At this stage, only stories published in 2020 have been fully categorised, but we will be steadily working our way back to 2010 over the coming months.

All feedback on this project is very welcome. Just email the webmaster at
