Community Action Team Volunteers
Community Action Teams provide smaller communities and groups with an opportunity to volunteer with the NSW SES. Volunteers use their existing skills and experience, and some basic training provided by the NSW SES to help prepare their community and keep people safe during severe weather events.
Community Action Teams provide a variety of roles depending on the requirements of the local community, but may be involved in protecting properties from flooding, using community networks to share important information, undertaking damage assessments and supporting other residents following a major weather event.

Further to the current COVID-19 response, NSW SES units are continuing to operate as close to normal as possible – including responding to calls for assistance from the community. Applications to volunteer with the NSW SES as part of an existing Community Action Team will be accepted during this time, however there may be a delay before we can respond to your application. We appreciate your patience and thank you for your interest in volunteering with the NSW SES.
