Warringah - Pittwater Unit
'Give it a go! Get your application in, go have a chat to your local unit volunteers and step out of your comfort zone! You won’t regret it! You’ll make amazing friends and you’ll learn a whole lot!'
3 years ago, which means I was 23 years old!
I’ve always had a sense of giving back and being a part of something bigger than myself. The SES, along with other emergency services played an integral role in the rescue and recovery of victims in the 1989 Kempsey bus crash, sadly, my cousins, auntie and uncle were involved. I was first introduced to the SES when my cousin told me about WOW day, I then looked into it and figured it was something I could be a part of! It’s my way of saying thank you on behalf of my family.
It’s the feeling that I’m making a positive difference to someone’s life.
And I always think back to “the worst in nature, the best in us”
The lifelong friends I’ve made, as well as the invaluable experience I’ve gained. That’s been the most memorable experience so far!
