The SES is a volunteer-based, professional emergency services organisation that serves the community 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

We are humbled by our volunteers, not only for what they do but for the personal sacrifices they make. We would like to thank them and their families for their time and support. It is that commitment and dedication that allows the TAS SES to protect life and property around the state.

We understand everyone has busy lives and these days our volunteering opportunities offer greater flexibility and more options.

If you are interested in becoming a member of the SES, you can visit your local unit or contact your regional manager.

Leave a Bequest

Thank you for considering leaving a gift to the SES in your will.

By leaving bequest to the Tasmanian SES, you make a powerful commitment to help us in developing volunteers: investing in their skills and abilities so that we can continue the tradition of promoting community resilience and the coming together of people to combat the threat of natural disasters.

We operate as one big family so we realise the importance of family and close relationships. We encourage anyone considering a gift to us, to first discuss their intentions with their love ones, and legal and support channels. Effective communication will help to assist your final wishes are carried out with dignity and in the way you want. We are grateful when people decide to include a gift in their will to the SES, as our volunteers benefit directly from this generosity.

Leaving a gift in a will is an important decision but it doesn’t have to be complicated. Here are the basics steps we would encourage donors to follow:

  • Step 1 – Have the very important conversation with your family and friends.
  • Step 2 – Seek the appropriate level of legal advice and guidance.
  • Step 3 – Make up your will and decide what you want to bequest.
  • Step 4 – Notify family of your decisions and keep them in the loop.
  • Step 5 – Notify SES of your intentions.
