The SES Volunteers Association of Western Australia Incorporated (SESVA)
(A prescribed Association for SES Volunteers in WA)
"one Association many issues"
Welcome to the website of the State Emergency Service Volunteers Association of Western Australia Incorporated (SESVA). The SESVA was formed in the late 1980’s with the objective of providing a focus for representing the views of SES Volunteers on issues which affect them. The SESVA has developed the ability to strongly voice the opinion of the volunteers where, when necessary, to the benefit of all the Volunteers of the SES, where the action of a single Volunteer or small group would not be as effective. The SESVA represents SES volunteers on a number of committees and working groups and has regular meetings with DFES.
SESVA role is to represent the views of SES Volunteers to all levels of Government, DFES and other agencies on all matters affecting SES volunteers and the way in which we serve our communities.

Current News Items
The WA SES History was launched at the recent DFES conference as an ebook, as edition 1. If more information comes forward to fill the many gaps, then it is hoped that the second edition will be a paper copy. Each SES delegate who attended the conference was given a copy of the e book on a USB stick. The e book contains information of the SES going back to its formation. So how to get your copy of the History of the SES, well simply ask the conference delegate from your unit to give you access the USB stick and download it to your computer.
