QLD SES and WOW Day
The Queensland State Emergency Service (SES) is a not-for-profit organisation that is supported through a partnership between the State Government and Local Governments of Queensland and the SES volunteers themselves.
Both State and Local Governments work towards a common SES goal with and for the benefit of the community.
With all the States, Qld will be celebrating WOW Day on Wednesday 17 May in 2023.
On this day we encourage the communities across Australia to say thank you to all the SES volunteers by wearing orange and posting photos on social media using our #thankyouSES, so that our volunteers can see their community support.
These trained volunteers generously give their time and are available 24/7 to help communities in times of emergency.
How To Get Involved in WOW Day
We at the QLD SES encourage workplaces, families and friends to be involved in WOW Day celebrations by wearing orange. You can GET INVOLVED by:
- Hosting a morning tea with an orange theme.
- Encouraging your employer/business to also GET INVOLVED (especially if there are SES volunteers who work there!).
- Promoting WOW Day on your social media by taking photos and using the hashtags:
Light Up Australia Orange
Here in Queensland, there will be many buildings that will join this initiative including the Suncorp Stadium and other city buildings in Brisbane.
The orange ‘light up’ helps our volunteers understand that community support is reciprocal.
