We are keen to recruit members with daytime availability as well as people who can respond overnight and at weekends. The role is to respond to Requests for Assistance (RFA's) from the community and to undertake activities such as equipment maintenance. We are looking for volunteer members who have or are interested in developing skills in a range of areas including hand tools, power tools, chainsaws, ladders and pumps. Volunteers may also be involved in assisting VICPOL in searches (such as for missing persons) and other activities. The opportunity also exists for members to train and qualify in the operation of small boats. SES members receive training in the skill areas mentioned and well as in First Aid and general Emergency Management.
