Operations
Operations consist of the members who control the general operation of the unit during call outs. Operations staff duties include:
* answering telephones
* prioritizing call out jobs
* organizing the rescue members for call outs
Operations staff also require training. Some of the courses that are

run by Regional HQ are as follows:
* Ops room staff
* Oziexplorer
* EM2000

Communications

Communications is run by Operations and their tasks include:
* making sure that radio (UHF/VHF/CB) are in good working condition
* batteries are charged
* mobile phones & pagers
Communications is a vital part (as is all sections) in allowing communication
between operations and the rescue members and teams.

Welfare

Welfare is provided to the members during callouts, training & exercises. This
may consist of breakfast, lunch or dinner. Also they provide tea, coffee, milo,
biscuits, cordial and many other things for the members. Taking care of our
kitchen and ablutions during emergency operations is an important task.

Store/Logistics

Equipment needs to be maintained and kept track of when used by the unit,
and replaced when consumed. Stores organise personal protective
equipment for the members, make sure that the vehicles are in good
working condition, as well as keeping the equipment in good working condition.

Rescue
The majority of our members are in rescue. Rescue consists of the teams
that respond to call outs using the trucks and other equipment that we carry
to conduct (amongst other things) rescues, searches, temporary building
repair and storm damage repairs, crash rescue. Rescue members are
trained in many skills during the Wednesday night training, during call outs
and at courses run mainly on weekends. Some of the skills are:
* placing tarps on roofs
* rescue procedures
* use of the units equipment
* tying of rescue knots
* casualty handling and packaging
* anchors (vehicle, natural, man made)
* small motors
* lifting systems
* mechanical advantage (MA) rigs
* communications
* pumping and sandbagging
* traffic control
The following courses are offered local or by Regional Headquarters:

* Basic Voice Procedures
* Single Rope Techniques (abseiling)
* Leadership
* Training Small Groups
* Navigating in Rural and Urban Environments
* Storm Damage
* Chainsaw Operator
* Roof Safety System
* General Rescue & Urban Search & Rescue



HARVEY Volunteer State Emergency Service
Volunteer Positions Available at the Harvey SES
With our new headquarters complex coming on line in August October/November 2016 (soon?), we are in urgent need of more volunteers to fill a number of new postions being created.

We can use anyone willing to make themselves available, even the not-so-young or those with disabilities (with exceptions). The list below gives an overview of the tasks that will need to be covered when our new building is fully functioning.

The new complex will be the Incident Control Centre for any future large scale emergencies in and around the Shire of Harvey, such as large bush fires. Our role in this would be to service the building and let the professionals do their job.

Added to all the normal SES duties, we also have our Road Accident Rescue role where our specialist team is on 24 hour, 7 days a week standby.

So if you want to do something amazing for your community, learn new skills and join a great bunch of like-minded guys, please send us an email or come along on any Wednesday Training Night to check us out.
