Victoria State Emergency Service (VICSES) is a volunteer-based emergency service. Our highly skilled and equipped Volunteers are trained comprehensively in a wide range of emergency environments. To minimise the impact of emergencies when they occur and strengthen the community's capacity to recover swiftly and safely, VICSES focuses on working with communities and partners in building resilience to achieve more aware, informed and prepared communities.  We support them to understand their risk and the relevance of taking action before, during and after emergency events.

We assist Victoria Police in search and rescue operations, and play an important role in supporting the Country Fire Authority (CFA), Fire Rescue Victoria (FRV), Parks Victoria and the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) during major bushfire and emergency incidents.

Support the implementation of the VICSES Mental Health and Wellbeing Framework by leading the design and development of best practice mental health and wellbeing policies, programs, and strategies.

Manage a case load of members through the provision of psychological services, including initial triage assessments, treatment planning and referrals in accordance with relevant standards.

Assess and implement appropriate crisis intervention strategies and coordinate and provide critical incident support as required.

Enhance our ability to care for our members by providing advice and support to our managers, volunteer leaders and consultants regarding members' mental health, wellbeing, and fitness for role requirements.
