Wear Orange Wednesday honours incredible work of selfless SES volunteers
Today’s WearOrangeWednesday (WOW) is a chance for the whole community to publicly recognise and express appreciation for the volunteers of the WA State Emergency Service. SES Volunteers Association President Gordon Hall called on all West Australian’s to embrace WOW day and wear orange to show their support for the more than 2,000 men and women who don the same brightly coloured overalls every year to help others.
“We are enormously proud of our SES volunteers,” Mr Hall said. “When disaster or misadventure strikes, the community can count on one thing – an amazing team of orange-clad SES volunteers aren’t far away.” “Our dedicated crews are made up of a diverse group of highly skilled individuals from all across the State. Students, tradespeople, stay-at-home mums, small business owners, professionals and retirees spend thousands of hours every year helping communities and other emergency services in times of need.”
“Wear Orange Wednesday is a chance for the community to show its appreciation and perhaps more importantly, support, for those incredible men and women.”
“When you’re out and about today, make sure you’re wearing something bright and orange to show everyone that you appreciate their work.” “We also encourage everyone to share their support for the SES team via social media using the hashtag #WearOrangeWednesday in all posts and comments today,” Mr Hall concluded.
