Volunteer today! You will be surprised at the level of personal satisfaction you will feel, not to mention the skills you will gain. Many of the volunteers mention how it has been a great way to meet other community members and build resilience within their community.  Contact your closest Volunteer Bushfire Brigade.

State Emergency Services

When a natural disaster strikes – a storm, cyclone, earthquake, or flood – State Emergency Service (SES) volunteers can be found helping communities and getting them back on their feet. SES provides a wide range of services to help communities cope with the effects of natural disasters, from emergency repairs on buildings to restoration of essential services and the ferrying of cargo and passengers across flood waters.
