Our Mission is “We work together to care and protect through cohesive  operations, collaborative management and a unified executive”.
Our workforce profile includes over 2500 full time and volunteer  personnel. The ESA comprises the ACT Ambulance Service, ACT Fire &  Rescue, the ACT Rural Fire Service, the ACT State Emergency Service and a  range of support services..

The Judging Process

The judging process for the Rotary ACT Emergency Services Community Awards (RESCA) is  taken very seriously. We hold our judges to the highest standards of  fairness, accuracy and integrity. The entire judging process adheres  firmly to these guiding principles.
Panels of independent judges selected from participating Rotary clubs across the ACT will judge all nominations.
As  well as looking at contributions within a nominee’s given Emergency  Service Agency (ESA), judges will be specifically looking for examples  of additional community service nominees have performed, above and  beyond their normal ESA duties – whether paid or volunteer. All  decisions of the judges are final; judges’ decisions cannot be appealed.
Up  to 8 Finalists will be selected from the ESA (can be paid or  volunteer). Finalists will be personally notified by the Chair of the  RESCA Steering Committee.
Two (2) overall winners (i.e 1  Paid and 1 Volunteer) will be announced at the Awards Dinner in August each year. Finalists and partners will be invited to attend the dinner to celebrate their achievements.
