An interesting update for volunteers.

Return to Work

The Association has now received a letter from the Treasurer advising how volunteers will be protected and copy of the Schedule being used is also attached. It has been a long haul and we will continue to work to ensure volunteers are fully supported and protected.

SASES Volunteer Charter

SASES Volunteer Charter passed Parliament on Wednesday 31st July 2019 and the Fire and Emergency Services Act 2005 ( was updated on 8th August 2019).

Having the Charter enshrined into legislation has been an extremely long journey, and both the SASESVA and CFSVA actively lobbied for the recognition of SES and CFS volunteers under a Volunteer Charter which provides a commitment by Government to consult with SES volunteers on any matters that may impact them.

Support over this 5 year journey was forthcoming from: The Hon Tammy Franks MLC; Mr Robert Brokenshire (former MLC); Dr Duncan McFetridge (former Member of Parliament).

Emergency Services Workers Protected

The State Government passed the Criminal Law Consolidation (Assaults on Prescribed Emergency Workers ) Amendment Act 2019 through Parliament on 23 July 2019 which will see the strongest penalties in the State’s history for emergency service worker (volunteer) assaults.

Entertainment Books 2019/2020

The Association has Entertainment books and digital versions can be applied for online. If books are obtained from the Association directly, payment must be by EFT or cash. Download the flyer for further details.

DEWNR again provides access to National Parks for SES Volunteers 2019/20

As volunteers who have enjoyed access to National Parks know, the format changed in 2019/20 with all bookings now being made online and nominating a specific vehicle for the 12 month period no longer applies.

All you have to do is use the code provided to you by the Association and when booking you must also use your volunteer email address. This is for both visiting parks and booking campsite facilities. Instructions pages are attached to the email, when we issue you with your code.

A reminder, when requesting a code, please send the request via your volunteer email address and also include your contact number.

Instruction pages are also located in the Members Only section.
