Meet some of the women and men who volunteer for WASES and find out why they joined, what they do and what they love about being a WASES volunteer.
Volunteering for the Western Australia State Emergency Service (WASES) can be one of the most rewarding and best investments you can make. As a WASES volunteer, you can make a difference.
Although volunteers are unpaid, there are lots of benefits, both personally and professionally, including the sense of achievement and pride that comes from giving something back to your community. Volunteers have a wide range of opportunities to develop new skills, form new friendships, accept high levels of responsibility and enjoy the team spirit of a tightly knit unit.
Monash Unit: The importance of volunteering
WASES Monash Unit (who used to be called Waverley Unit) made this wonderful video for National Volunteer Week 2014. It’s a great insight into who they are and why they volunteer and it’s easy to see their dedication and passion for giving back to the community.
