What do you do as a NSW SES Volunteer?

My role is that of volunteer Local Controller for the Gilgandra SES Unit.

Gilgandra is a primary rescue unit for the community and surrounding Local Government area.

Why did you join the NSW SES?

My professional/paid role, is NSW Ambulance Paramedic Educator.

Despite this I joined the local SES unit so as to assist the community in times of need and to gain a number of skills which I did not currently have.
