Wednesday 17 May is Wear Orange Wednesday

It's the national day of thanks (External link) for the incredible contributions of SES volunteers across our communities.

Volunteers are the backbone of VICSES - the Victoria State Emergency Service.

The past 12 months have been one of the busiest operational periods in the organisation’s history, with VICSES volunteers responding to over 34,000 requests for assistance.

Sites across Victoria will turn the town orange in recognition of our members for WOW Day

Check out the locations (External link) to spot on the week of WOW Day
