Derwent Valley SES is located on the corner of George and Blair Streets in New Norfolk.
We provide a 24/7 response service to communities in the Derwent Valley– which is only possible through the help of our volunteers.
Derwent Valley SES responds to many types of emergencies and provides assistance during severe storms and floods, in road crash rescue, search and rescue, and a range of other general rescue activities. We also support other emergency service organisations, as required.
In addition to operational activities, the SES is responsible for planning, emergency risk management and supporting recovery. We support communities in the Derwent Valley to better understand emergency events by:
helping them prepare for future emergencies
helping them to understand their role
increasing awareness of the role of SES and others.
