SES Week is an ex­cel­lent op­por­tu­nity to raise pub­lic aware­ness of SES mem­bers across the na­tion, the ded­i­ca­tion and com­mit­ment by the mem­bers and the in­valu­able ser­vices they per­form for their com­mu­ni­ties.

Queens­land SES Week started Oc­to­ber 17 and runs un­til Oc­to­ber 25.

The ef­forts of the Queens­land SES will be recog­nised dur­ing this cel­e­bra­tory week.

Award cer­e­monies will be held state-wide through­out SES Week and cul­mi­nate in the Queens­land State Awards Cer­e­mony in Bris­bane on Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 25.

SES groups around the coun­try will be hold­ing events to cel­e­brate all that is great about SES vol­un­teers.

This year marks the 40th an­niver­sary of the Queens­land SES.

On De­cem­ber 11, 1975, with the pass­ing of the State Counter Dis­as­ter Or­gan­i­sa­tion Act 1975, the Queens­land State Emer­gency Ser­vice was of­fi­cially formed.

To cel­e­brate and high­light this his­toric mile­stone, a com­mem­o­ra­tive book has been pub­lished.

The book is re­flec­tive of the time, ded­i­ca­tion, spirit and ser­vice the SES vol­un­teers have con­trib­uted to Queens­land over the past 40 years.

There is also a na­tional Wear Orange Wed­nes­day day, which will take place in Novem­ber.

More de­tails will be ad­vised closer to the date.
