The NSW State Emergency Service (NSW SES) is an emergency and rescue service dedicated to assisting the community. We are a volunteer-based organisation that provides emergency assistance to the people of NSW 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.
It is the approximately 9,000 volunteers across the state that make this possible. NSW SES volunteers come from all walks of life, bringing with them many different skills, interests and backgrounds. They are united by the purpose of supporting their communities in times of need.
In 2022, the NSW SES is transitioning to the Australian Warning System and launching a new warnings platform – HazardWatch (hazardwatch.gov.au), in partnership with the NSW Department of Customer Service.
Community members can view NSW SES flood warnings on a responsive map & list view. The platform provides real time warning information to empower communities to make safe decisions ahead of severe weather.
Visit our exhibition booth at AFAC 2022 for a demonstration of HazardWatch and to learn more.
