New look SES truck celebrating Ngunnawal culture

An ACT State Emergency Service truck featuring Ngunnawal artwork is recognising and celebrating the Traditional Custodians of our region, the Ngunnawal people.

The truck’s artwork was designed by local Ngunnawal artist Richie Allan and tells the story of the relationship between the ACT State Emergency Service (ACTSES) and Ngunnawal land and people.

This project has become a reality because of the strong relationship our emergency services have built with the Ngunnawal community.

Next week is NAIDOC Week and this new artwork also reflects our broader commitment to honouring all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

It adds to a growing fleet of ACT Emergency Services Agency (ESA) vehicles featuring artwork that carries important community messages:

  • Smoke alarm safety (ACT Fire & Rescue)
  • Domestic violence awareness (ACT Fire & Rescue and ACT Rural Fire Service)
  • Ngunnawal artwork (ACT Fire & Rescue and ACT State Emergency Service)
  • LGBTIQ pride and support (ACT State Emergency Service and ACT Rural Fire Service)
  • Centenary of Canberra (ACT Rural Fire Service)

Our ACT State Emergency Service provides support to the ACT during storm and flood events as well as supporting other emergency services in the ACT and across the country.
