Its Wear Orange Wednesday (WOW)!

VRT

On WOW Day people across Australia will be wearing orange as a way to say thanks to our dedicated SES volunteers who help their communities prepare for, respond to and recover from emergencies

A search and rescue demonstration will be held at Murdoch University. The simulated search will involved the mounted section, all-terrain utilities (ATUs) and a tyrolean (zipline), showcasing the vast skills and competencies of SES volunteers. To show appreciation for SES volunteers, iconic locations around the State will be lit up in a brilliant orange including Elizabeth Quay, the Bell Tower and Perth Concert Hall.

To see all the news, go to Wear Orange Wednesday WA on facebook or SES WOW day WA at Twitter and Instagram, upload your photos with #thankyouSES
