Our SES volunteers come from all walks of life, all backgrounds and all professions. In fact, the main thing SES volunteers have in common is a desire to make a contribution within their community. Some of the activities that contribute to the community s through storm and flood response, road crash rescue, remote area search and rescue and public relations/community events.

I wanted to give you an opportunity to get involved in this fun and important show of support. There are a number of ways in which your organisation can show your support for the SES volunteers, including: 

  • lighting an iconic building or statue in orange (e.g. Hobart City is lighting the Railway Roundabout Fountain, Kennedy Lane and the Elizabeth St Mall in Orange); 
  • hosting a morning or afternoon tea with a dress up in orange theme; 
  • advertising WOW Day in prominent areas of your workplace; or 
  • promoting WOW Day on your various Social media sources.

To help you with this the WOW Day website ( contains a variety of ideas and downloadable resources to aid in becoming involved, the site contains: 

  • social media tools; 
  • suggestions for WOW Day activities; and 
  • a media kit containing posters, selfie frames and other resources.

If you’d like to participate, please contact Colleen Ridge
