On Wednesday 19th May 2021, VICSES celebrates Wear Orange Wednesday, a national day of thanks for the thousands of VICSES volunteers who serve the Victorian community 24 hours a day, seven days a week through storm, flood, road crash rescue, and much more.
It’s the national day of recognition to say ‘thank you’ to SES volunteers.
Volunteers are the backbone of our service. In the 2019-20 financial year, VICSES volunteers responded to over 33,700 requests for assistance.
Victorians are encouraged to get their workplaces, families, and friends involved in WOW Day celebrations by wearing orange and posting a photo to social media using the hashtags #WOWDay and #ThankYouSES.
