The South Australian State Emergency Service (SES) is an emergency management organisation made up almost entirely of volunteers. Our people are dedicated to helping those who are in need and building community resilience.
SES has a highly skilled and dedicated group of volunteers. We are always looking for new and enthusiastic people to join us.

The SES provides emergency assistance to thousands of South Australians every year. This would be simply unachievable without the support of more than 1,600 volunteers across the state. But we need more, especially in regional areas of the state. The rewards are many.
SERVE YOUR COMMUNITY
Experience the sense of pride that comes from serving your community. You will play a vital role in ensuring the safety and resilience of your community by being part of the SES
PERSONAL AND PROFESSIONAL GROWTH
The training and experience you will receive as a volunteer will help you develop skills in leadership, communication, problem solving, personal organisation, prioritising tasks and physical fitness. These skills are highly valued by employers.
MAKE LIFELONG FRIENDS
Meet with new people and make lifelong friends. As an integral part of a highly trained volunteer unit, you will work closely with other dedicated volunteers who, like a family, make up the life of the organisation.
In addition to comprehensive training, psychological first aid support is available through the Stress Prevention and Management team to all volunteers, if they should ever need it.
RECOGNITION OF SERVICE
Volunteers are eligible for numerous honours and awards at a local, state and even national level. To recognise, value, respect and promote SES volunteers is a priority for the organisation.
