Warrnambool S.E.S is on a recruitment drive.
The Warrnambool SES is looking for new members to help boost numbers across the region.
The local branch currently has 43 volunteers but ideally it needs around 60 to service the region.
The S.E.S gets called out during fires, floods, road crashes, and many other emergencies in the region.
Unit controller Giorgio Palemeri says they're holding a recruitment night on Monday at 40 Walsh road at 7pm.
He says people from all walks of life are suitable to become a volunteer, with extensive training provided.
Volunteers say the friendships and camaraderie are an extra bonus of joining the organisation.
