Welcome to Chelsea SES
Welcome to the Chelsea SES Website. Here you can find out how to join the team, what we do, who we are, and even learn some of our language. There are pictures of us in action and the vehicles and equipment that we use. We hope that you find this site interesting and easy to navigate.
As one of the States longest established units, Chelsea SES performs a wide variety of services including, General Rescue, Search and Rescue, Storm Damage as well as being the base for 3 IRB's (Inflatable rubber Boats) and boat crews for Flood and inland water Rescue.
Our service area is amongst the largest in the Central Region with our borders being, Eel Race Road at Seaford, The Mornington Peninsula Freeway, Springvale Road to Lower Dandenong Road and Balcombe Road to the beach including Aspendale Gardens, Waterways and Patterson Lakes as well as the largely industrial suburb of Braeside.
Unlike some other community emergency organisations, at unit level, the SES is manned totally by volunteers. We currently have approximately 45 operational and non-operational members and are constantly looking for more members to join us. You can find out how easy it is to become a part of our team on the "Join The SES" page on this site.
This site is aimed at every member of the community that live, work and go to school in our operational area. There will be regular updates posted to keep you informed of operational events and any up coming public relations events.
Our aim is to keep you informed about the job we do and the people who do it. Thanks for visiting our site. Stay a while and explore a little, you might just find something you didn't expect.

Golf Day 2014
Thank you Chelsea SES
Ready to go for 2014
With a very early start for the volunteers involved in this year’s Thank You Chelsea SES Golf Day being held at the Chelsea Public Golf Course by The Australasian Golf Club, the last thing anyone needed was a busy Saturday night. Sadly, it’s rare to have everything go to plan and around 5pm on the Saturday evening 2 major storm fronts hit the Chelsea Operational area leaving the volunteers with almost 50 jobs, including building damage, trees down and flooding, to deal with. With this in mind, there were more than a few bleary eyes when they arrived at the course to set up and prepare breakfast around 7am.
