All SES vehicles (unless specifically identified differently below) are initially purchased by DFES and fitted out as part of the DFES build program. Once completed, the vehicles are handed over to local government and ownership is transferred. The vehicles are then maintained by the respective SES units (the local governments) under LGGS funding.
