Home | Victoria State Emergency Service
A brand new home for the Victoria State Emergency Service (VICSES) Chiltern Unit was officially unveiled today, at its new location.
A cold front bringing vigorous north to northwesterly flows will result in damaging winds and heavy rain for parts of the State.
A brand new location for Victoria State Emergency Service (VICSES) Heidelberg Unit, formally called the VICSES Northcote Unit, was unveiled today thanks to investment from the Victorian Government. The Unit will now be re-named the Heidelberg Unit.
"It’s always rewarding to put our skills and training to use helping others in their time of need.”
VICSES volunteers will this morning depart Victoria to support flood affected communities in New South Wales.
"Each search requires around thirty-two hours of volunteer time for each rescue."
"John knew that the unit needed to better reflect changes in society to get the right people."
"They will challenge their command, medical, extrication, and technical abilities."
Congratulations to our newest Emergency Service Medal (ESM) recipients, Jo Hunter and Kylie Trott.
"The new design contributes to a safer and more operationally efficient facility for the volunteers."
Now, our RCR volunteers only need three pieces of equipment: a cutter, a spreader, and a combi-tool.
“I am so proud to wear this uniform and to be a part of the orange family."
"38 VICSES volunteers will have the opportunity to take to the field at the MCG."
"It is critical before leaving on long trips to be well rested."
"Remember to take a break if you see a rest stop along your journey."
"Refurbishment works had been ongoing over the course of the last two years"
"We advise the public that flooding may occur overnight Saturday into Sunday."
