State Emergency Service Awards

Nominations for the 2018 State Emergency Service (SES) Awards closed on Wednesday 16 May. Judging is now underway and finalists will be announced shortly.

The awards honour the achievements of active SES volunteers, teams and units who have shown dedication above the call of duty.

SES Awards will be presented in the following three categories:

  • Peter Keillor Award
  • Team Achievement Award
  • Youth Achievement Award (volunteers 16–25 years)

Winners will be announced at a joint evening ceremony to be held in September at Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre, during AFAC Conference.

AFAC Conference has replaced our annual WA Fire and Emergency Services conference, which will return in 2019. Due to conference programming the State Emergency Service Awards, Firefighting Awards and Volunteer Marine Rescue Service Awards are being combined into one event this year.
