Roxby Downs SES Unit

SES volunteers provide emergency response to the community of South Australia 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The SES has 67 units across the state and over 1600 dedicated volunteers. As the Hazard Leader and Control Agency for extreme weather in South Australia, the SES aims to increase community awareness and preparedness relating to extreme weather events.

Getting Involved

The SES is a versatile and highly active volunteer emergency service organisation. While the primary role of the SES is to respond to incidents involving floods and storms, it also provides crucial support and assistance to other emergency service organisations. One major support role is in assisting the SA Police with searches. The SES also works very closely with the Bureau of Meteorology, especially during periods of extreme weather and when issuing weather- related public safety advice. In a typical year in South Australia, floods and storms account for well in excess of 50% of the overall economic costs of all natural hazards (including bushfire). Therefore, being prepared for floods and storms should be a high priority for all South Australians.
