This involves providing emergency repairs on buildings, to restoration of essential services and ferrying cargo and passengers across flood waters.

Helping the community to recover by responding to natural disasters is only part of SES’ responsibility. Volunteers also carry out land search working alongside WA Police, cliff, aerial and cave rescues. SES volunteers can also assist with air search observation.

In remote areas where Fire and Rescue Service (FRS) is unavailable, SES volunteers are responsible for the difficult task of extricating people from vehicles involved in road crash incidents. There are over 2,100 SES volunteers in WA. Many work diligently behind the scenes as radio or computer operators, in administration or incident control, planning and logistics. SES volunteers also actively promote safety education, prevention and preparation measures in visits to service groups, senior centres and homes, local business and schools. Volunteers are required to attend call outs whenever possible.
