‘WEAR ORANGE WEDNESDAY’ TO SUPPORT OUR SES VOLUNTEERS

MEMBER for Northern Tablelands Adam Marshall has todayreminded the local community that today is Wear Orange Wednesday (WOW Day) in support of SES volunteers during National Volunteer Week.

 

“Members of Parliament are participating in WOW day by wearing orange in order to display our support,” Mr Marshall said.

 

“There are 40,000 SES volunteers across Australia who each year collectively provide around a million hours of their time to help communities in times of natural disasters and emergencies.

 

“These dedicated people are on call to respond 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year,” he said.

 

“SES volunteers have a passion for helping people in the worst of weather and at the hardest of times, helping with storm and flood operations and other rescue activities.

 

“On WOW Day, the simple concept of wearing orange will show your support of the amazing SES volunteers across Australia and will show that they are valued by the communities they support and keep safe.”
