The ACT Emergency Services Agency (ESA) is the ACT Government organisation charged with providing emergency management services to the Canberra community.
The ESA comprises the ACT Ambulance Service, ACT Fire & Rescue, the ACT Rural Fire Service, the ACT State Emergency Service and the ESA Support Services.
Together we are one team of many players with a single vision of being “the trusted agency for emergency management in the ACT.
Our workforce profile includes over 1500 fulltime and volunteer personnel.
The ESA, in its current form, was created on 1 July 2006 when the former statutory authority, the ACT Emergency Services Authority was placed under the administrative control of the ACT Department of Justice and Community Safety (now the Justice and Community Safety Directorate).
