WEAR Orange Wednesday (WOW) Day is on Wednesday, May 18. It’s a day to say thank you to Victoria State Emergency Service (VICSES) volunteers.

VICSES North East Region volunteers responded to more than 3500 calls for help in the last 12 months, providing assistance with over 2100 downed trees. nearly 300 damaged buildings and 190 road rescues.

During the busiest year in VICSES history, SES volunteers supported local communities throughout the North East during flood, storm, landslide, road rescue, search and rescue events. Victorians are asked to wear a splash of orange on WOW Day as a show of thanks, for the invaluable contribution our volunteers have made to the state.

Held during National Volunteer Week, WOW Day is a national campaign and an important day of appreciation for volunteers, who selflessly dedicate their time and skills to helping their communities during their most acute time of need.

Wear a splash of orange next Wednesday, and look out for the hashtag #ThankYouSES and #WOWday.
