Victoria State Emergency Service (SES)

Victoria State Emergency Service (SES) The Victoria State Emergency Service (SES) is a volunteer based emergency service, servicing the State of Victoria.

The SES has a wide range of roles including planning for and responding to floods, severe storms, earthquakes, road accident rescue as well as search and rescue.

The SES also provides a support role to other emergency service agencies including the Victoria Police. More than 5,500 volunteers, supported by 72 staff, provide this response across the state.

The SES also has a major planning role providing support and guidance to Government departments and municipalities, as well as providing an audit role on all municipal emergency plans.

Call 132 500 from anywhere in Victoria for emergency SES assistance in a flood or storm. It is the same cost as a local call in Victoria (mobiles may be higher). SES volunteers are on call 24 hours a day to provide emergency assistance if you or your property is affected by a flood or storm. When you call 132 500 you will be connected to your local SES Unit or an emergency communications centre, where a trained call taker will note the details and dispatch the local SES Unit to the incident. Phone triple zero (000) for police, fire or ambulance.
