Victoria State Emergency Service - Bellarine Unit

VICSES Bellarine Unit - General Appeal



Victoria State Emergency Service (VICSES) is the control agency for flood, storm, tsunami and earthquake in Victoria, managing responses to these emergencies and helping communities to prepare through planning and education.  VICSES also operates the largest road crash rescue response network in the state, and provides a support role to other emergency service agencies.

VICSES Bellarine Unit has its local headquarters on the outskirts of Drysdale and is made up of a group of dedicated volunteers who respond to emergencies 24/7 right across the Bellarine Peninsula.



VICSES Bellarine Unit receives funding from a combination of sources including from government, grants and public donations.

Our members spend time throughout the year raising funds - so if you see us dressed in orange at a community event, tin rattling at an intersection, or come across a SES branded donation tin at your local retailer, then please consider giving a donation.  Some grants that we are eligible for are on a two-for-one basis whereby every dollar we raise from the public is literally three dollars in our hand.

Funds raised may go toward the purchase of new response vehicles or rescue equipment, capital projects such as new buildings, or to general day-to-day maintenance and running expenses.
