NSW State Emergency Service volunteers do not attend fire jobs.

NSW SES major responsibilities are for flood, storm and tsunami emergencies; NSW SES also provides the majority of general rescue effort in the rural parts of the state.

This includes:

  • Road accident rescue
  • Vertical rescue
  • Bush search and rescue
  • Evidence searches (both metropolitan and rural) and other forms of specialist rescue that may be required due to local threats.

For help in flood or storms call NSW SES on 132 500. If life threatening call triple zero (000).

NSW SES also assists other emergency services when they are performing major operations. These services include the NSW Police Force, the NSW Rural Fire Service, Fire and Rescue NSW and the Ambulance Service of NSW.
