WOW Day on 17 May

Councillors were joined by SES volunteers at the Shire of Ravensthorpe stall at the Hopetoun markets recently.

The SES volunteers gave knot tying demonstrations and also answered many questions from members of the community.

Thank you to all who dropped by the stand to say hello and ask questions.


As we have seen in recent times of emergency, our community relies heavily on volunteers. 

This coming Wednesday 17 May, 2023 is Wear Orange Wednesday or 'WOW Day'. On this day we encourage people to wear orange and thank all SES volunteers who generously give their time to help communities during emergencies.

These highly skilled men and women drop everything to help when people need them the most. They assist WA Police during land searches, undertake aerial and cave rescues, attend road crashes and assist fire crews during the long, hot bushfire season.

Wear orange on WOW Day and show your support by uploading your images to social media using the hashtag #thankyouSES
