Who are the SES and What do they do?
The State Emergency Service is a National organisation of volunteers – ‘ordinary people doing extraordinary things’.
The Queensland SES consists of thousands of ‘unpaid’ volunteers from a variety of backgrounds and professions who respond to emergencies and disasters across the State, 24/7.
They are trained and equipped to help their communities across a range of functions, and their primary purpose is to assist the most vulnerable members of the community.
The SES is designed to empower people to help themselves and others in their community in times of emergency and disaster. The basic concept is one of self-help and mutual assistance within each community.
Queensland SES volunteers receive world class training providing them with real life skills which are used during emergencies, and knowledge that stays with them throughout their life.
SES volunteers work together with a great group of like–minded people. They train and respond to emergencies together, and the experiences they share lay the foundations for life-long friendships.
