WOW Day

WOW Day 18 May 2022

Wear orange in appreciation of NSW SES Volunteers

Residents of NSW are encouraged to wear something orange on Wednesday 18 May to show their support and appreciation for their local NSW State Emergency Service (NSW SES) volunteers.

Wednesday 18th of May, 2022 is Wear Orange Wednesday or 'WOW Day'. On this day we encourage communities across Australia to wear orange and thank all SES volunteers across Australia who generously give their time to help communities during flood and storm emergencies.

Here’s to all the volunteers across Australia who work all year round to protect us at our most vulnerable. We thank you for saving lives and protecting communities.

National Volunteer Week (NVW) is the annual celebration to acknowledge the generous contribution of our nation’s volunteers. From Monday 16th to Sunday 22nd May 2022, NVW will celebrate the significant contribution of Australia’s almost six million volunteers and we will highlight our special SES volunteers.
Share your video or photo of thanks during May, and use the hashtag #thankyouSES
