11 May 2016 is National Wear Orange Wednesday (WOW) Day.

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.

In Western Australia, a search and rescue demonstration will be held at Murdoch University. The simulated search will involve 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.

Show your support for the SES by wearing orange on Wednesday 11 May.
