Our Sponsors

The Queensland State Emergency Service (SES) recognises the value of its brand and the community we reach. 

Sponsorship involves the provision of money, goods or services to SES, in return for agreed commercial benefits to the company and may be a Shared Value concept.  Sponsorships are customised to ensure the relationship is successful for both parties.

Our Partners directly help SES Volunteers across the State to perform their role and assist the most vulnerable members of the Queensland community, often in challenging time and events.

“It just makes my life a little bit easier.”

“It’s fantastic to know that the community and that some quite significant companies in Queensland are behind the SES.”

The energy companies are Energising Qld SES thanks to an equipment boost.

The generous support from Energy Queensland (through Energex and Ergon) and Powerlink has seen $200,000 worth of equipment available to frontline QLD SES volunteers in the coming months.

Under the Energising Qld SES Equipment Program, SES Groups throughout Queensland will receive resuscitation equipment, pole saws, generators, chainsaws, stretchers, emergency lighting equipment, vehicle accessories and other tools to help them provide additional support for the community. 

The 2017 program is a continuation of support from 2015 and 2016 and Deputy Commissioner Mike Wassing thanked the three energy providers for their ongoing commitment to the SES in Queensland.

“The disaster response equipment provided to SES Groups by Energex, Ergon and Powerlink this year has been a welcome addition to frontline emergency toolkits,” Mr Wassing said.

“SES volunteers are on call 24-7, ready to help their communities whenever they are needed; these ordinary people — with families, jobs and commitments like anyone else — give up their time to be there to lend a hand when people are doing it tough.

“It is great to see that the incredible contribution SES volunteers make in Queensland is recognised and valued.”

Powerlink CEO Merryn York said the program aimed to make it easier for the SES to provide essential services to communities in need.

“A well-prepared and well-equipped SES will enable the response to the types of events we have here in Queensland to occur more quickly and to be more effective,” Ms York said.

Energy Queensland (Energex and Ergon) CEO David Smales said Energy Queensland was pleased to partner with Powerlink to deliver the Program.

“We’re very proud to be involved in this important partnership,” Mr Smales said. 

“It is a tangible way we can work together to deliver on our commitment to help keep our community safe.”

​NRMA Insurance

SES partners with NRMA Insurance to support the volunteers.

NRMA Insurance is part of the Insurance Australia Group and is the Principal Partner of the Queensland SES.

As a responsible corporate citizen, NRMA Insurance have an interest in supporting the development of connected and resilient communities and have a number of programs aimed at strengthening communities in various ways.  Their support of SES, in both Queensland and NSW, is part of this.

Partnerships are about more than just providing money and putting a brand on clothing and other items.  The partnership between SES and NRMA Insurance is already meant:

  • Community organisation connection to groups like Orange Sky Laundry, Australian Red Cross and GIViT

    • This expands networks and helps find simple and effective ways to support other groups, assisting in disaster situations, to support community in ways that are consistent with the SES strategic objectives and provides opportunities for innovative collaboration for the good of community.

  • Provide opportunities to thank volunteers for their efforts

    • With active participation in WOW Day, SES Week and other activities, and occasional other opportunities (like football tickets from other organisations they also sponsor), NRMA Insurance are acknowledging the dedication and commitment of our volunteers and helping to increase the community awareness of what SES achieves.

  • Sharing resources and information

    • NRMA Insurance collect a range of data around storms, storm season and severe weather events.  Sharing this with SES provides valuable information and trends that SES wouldn't be otherwise resourced to obtain.

  • Practical and effective resources to support delivery of SES activities

    • Provision of engagement tools, like marquees and banners, assist SES with community events.

  • Functional equipment and discounts direct to the volunteers

    • Provision of the valuable and quality hydration packs to volunteers acknowledges the commitment of the volunteers and motivates up-skilling.  NRMA Insurance also offer discounted insurance products to SES volunteers.

  • Opportunities for innovation

    • Because partnerships are flexible, the partnership between SES and NRMA Insurance means that SES has the opportunity to develop innovative concepts into reality. 

The partnership strengthens both organisations and supports the development of safe and resilient communities so is a great match.
