WOW Day 2017
Over 2,000 SES volunteers across Western Australia play a vital role in keeping the community safe during natural disasters and emergencies.
These highly skilled volunteers conduct emergency repairs to buildings damaged by cyclones, storms and floods, ferry cargo and passengers across floodwaters, conduct land searches, aerial and cave rescues, attend road crashes and much more.
We encourage everyone to wear orange on 10 May 2017 to celebrate and show their support of the hard work and dedication of SES volunteers throughout Australia.
EVENTS on May 10
Curtin University Information Stall
The Department of Fire and Emergency Services and SES volunteers will be running an information and recruitment stall at Curtin University, near the Robertson Library, between 11:30am and 2:30pm. Stop by to learn more about the diversity of roles within the SES and take a tour of the Forward Operating Vehicle which is used during large scale search and rescue operations.
Going ORANGE for WOW Day
A number of iconic locations across the State will be lit up in a magnificent orange in support of the SES volunteers, including the Bell Tower, His Majesty’s Theatre, Elizabeth Quay, Perth Concert Hall and Council House.
Why not also take a drive by the Swan River in Nedlands to see how the Eliza Statue is showing her support?
