Dress­ing up in or­ange to sup­port SES work­ers

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

YESTREDAY was Wear Or­ange Wed­nes­day (WOW Day) where peo­ple dress up in or­ange to sup­port our SES vol­un­teers.

Did you pick out some or­ange from the wardrobe to raise aware­ness for the SES?

It’s an easy way to show sup­port for the vol­un­teers.

WOW Day this year co­in­cided with Na­tional Vol­un­teer Week, which cel­e­brates the spirit of vol­un­teer­ing.

The SES are one of the first vol­un­teer ser­vices who re­spond to ma­jor dis­as­ters, land searches, dis­as­ter re­cov­ery and flood res­cues just to name a few.

There are 40,000 SES vol­un­teers across Aus­tralia, and the North Bur­nett branch is al­ways on the look­out for helpers.

SES had over 20 call outs across the North Bur­nett last year, at­tend­ing to seven fa­tal­i­ties.

These in­cluded land searches, traf­fic con­trol, log­ging ac­ci­dents and storm dam­age.

Those look­ing to take the next step and vol­un­teer with North Bur­nett SES can email con­troller Brian Lowe at sescon­troller@north­bur­nett.qld.gov.au.
