NSW SES signs major partnership agreement with AAMI
Communities across NSW are set to benefit from a new major partnership between the NSW State Emergency Service (SES) and insurer AAMI, part of the Suncorp Group.
AAMI's partnership will support key strategic priorities for the NSW SES including community resilience, engagement, education and preparedness, as well as other initiatives such as public safety campaigns, shared insights and volunteering.
NSW SES Commissioner Carlene York APM said working in partnership with AAMI would assist communities throughout NSW who have been significantly impacted by floods and storms.
“We look forward to working in partnership with AAMI to focus on key priority areas, with an overarching focus on community resilience, engagement and education,” Commissioner York said.

Through this generous support from AAMI, the NSW SES will be investing in programs and education campaigns that are designed to increase resilience at a local level and enhance community preparedness. The partnership aims to support volunteer efforts, highlight shared learnings, and bolster overall capability for the NSW SES.
“We have seen our NSW SES volunteers show up time and time again to assist their community in floods and storms, and we are really excited to be presented with the opportunity to further help our volunteers as they work tirelessly to support their communities.”
Lisa Harrison, CEO Insurance Product and Portfolio, Suncorp Group, said the partnership further cements AAMI’s strong credentials in supporting important community initiatives.
“AAMI is excited to work together with the NSW SES in assisting communities during their time of need. This partnership will see us deliver to all parts of the state to support the ongoing needs of the volunteers of NSW SES,” Ms Harrison said.
“As an insurer we see the significant commitment of SES volunteers who work on the frontline after every natural disaster, and we look forward to working in partnership with NSW SES over the coming years.
“AAMI has provided support to Victoria SES as a Principal Community Partner since 2003, and similarly with Suncorp’s partnership with the Queensland SES since 2020. With our new NSW partnership, we are proud to back the many thousands of SES volunteers who provide emergency assistance to Australians when they need it most.”
