Your Family, Our Family
Your family, our family is a campaign designed to highlight the sacrifices family members and friends make to ensure Victoria State Emergency Service (VICSES) volunteers are able to support their community.
Your family, our family: About the campaign
Behind every brave and hard-working Victoria State Emergency Service (VICSES) volunteer is a support network of people that help them achieve amazing things in their community.
In 2020, our members’ friends and family have stood by our volunteers through a busy bushfire season, major storm systems, and the COVID-19 pandemic. Because of them, our volunteers can respond to emergencies 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
Whether it’s picking up the kids from school, heating up dinner, or being there for a hug after a long day or night – the support means everything to us.
During the weekend of November 14 – 15, the your family, our family social campaign aims to highlight the incredible people that love and support the 5,000+ volunteers who are the backbone of our service.
Your family, our family will celebrate the diversity of our members and their families across metro and regional Victoria – with feature stories from each region VICSES operates.
