Wear orange in appreciation of NSW SES Volunteers
Residents of NSW are encouraged to wear something orange on Wednesday 19 May to show their support and appreciation for their local NSW State Emergency Service (NSW SES) volunteers.
Wednesday 19th of May, 2021 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 17th to Sunday 23rd May 2021, NVW will celebrate the significant contribution of Australia’s almost six million volunteers and we will highlight our special SES volunteers.
