The membership of the Craigieburn Unit of the Victorian State Emergency Service (VICSES) is composed of around 40 active volunteers who provide immediate assistance to the community during times of emergency. Our volunteers come from a diverse variety of backgrounds and professions, and all have a common desire to make a contribution to the community in which they live.
Craigieburn Unit responds to a wide variety of incidents including Storm and Flood Damage, Search and Rescue in urban as well as bush and alpine areas, General Rescue, Specialist Rescue, and Road Crash Rescue. Craigieburn SES also provides support to other agencies including Victoria Police, CFA and Ambulance Victoria. VICSES is the lead agency when responding to floods, storms and earthquakes and operates the largest network of road rescue in Australia.
The following values form the keystone of the Unit’s strength and consistency in rescue operations:
Determination. Courage. Dedication. Compassion. Professionalism. Flexibility. Loyalty. Inspirational. Friendship. Remembrance.
