The SES is painting the town ORANGE for Wear Orange Wednesday (WOW Day) on 22 May and we want you to join in the fun. Get your family and friends to wear something orange to work or school to thank our SES volunteers.
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.
The SES consists of 6,000 active volunteers from a variety of backgrounds and professions who respond to emergencies and disasters across the state, 24/7. They are trained and equipped to help their communities across a range of functions, and their primary purpose is to assist the most vulnerable members of the community.
The SES is designed to empower people to help themselves and others in their community in times of emergency and disaster. The basic concept is one of self-help and mutual assistance within each community.
