WOW Day Representatives

The SES Volunteers Association is looking for SES Volunteers in each region of Western Australia to represent and promote the SES on WOW Day this year.  The SES Volunteer  will participate in at least one radio interview the day before and/or on WOW Day to encourage people to wear orange, wherever tpeople are on the day.

The SES Volunteers will also be involved in promoting the SES with photographic exposure, twitter, a promotional video for the day, and any other media opportunities which may be pursued.  The SES Volunteers will be need to have a reasonable level of experience in the SES, so they can confidently portray the values of the SES during the radio interview and at any other media opportunities.

This experience does not need to be extensive, just an understanding of the SES.  All SES Volunteers are asked to consider being involved.

If you would like to be involved, please send an expression of interest to

We are not looking for a major book in your expression of interest.  Just a few words outlining why you would like to represent the SES Volunteers in your region, your experiences in the SES, and obviously name and contact details.

Unfortunately, due to everything else which has/is happening, we need your expression of interest by COB Wednesday, 15th April 2020.  We know this is an extremely short time frame, but unfortunately we cannot extend it any further.
