Western Adelaide SES

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

We operate with approximately 30 active volunteer members, responding to around over 400 incidents per year ranging from tree down, to full on Technical resuce.

Western Adelaide is directly responsible for around 80,000 people, over 45sq km. We cover a large area from the city to the coast, Port rd to Anzac Hwy. We also assist other units, and areas around the state or even interstate when needed.
