Western Adelaide (WAD)

The Western Adelaide SES Unit comprises volunteers who provide a rescue service, dedicated to protecting lives and property primarily in our local community, but also across South Australia and interstate as required.

We operate with approximately 30-35 volunteer members, and encourage both male and female persons over 18 years of age to join us.

The unit covers the area between the city, Anzac Hwy, Port Rd and the coast, and respond to around 800 incidents per year.


Supporting our communities to protect what is important to them.

What is SES?

The State Emergency Service (SES) is a versatile and highly active volunteer emergency service organisation. While the primary role of the SES is to respond to incidents involving floods and storms, it also provides crucial support and assistance to other emergency service organisations.

Volunteers can also also be deployed to help out in large scale emergencies locally and interstate including floods and bushfires, such as Sampson Flat and Pinery bushfires, and cyclones in Queensland.
