WOW Day

On Wednesday 22nd May, all Australians are encouraged to wear orange in a united show of thanks for the tremendous work done and commitment shown by SES volunteers.

Wear Orange Wednesday (WOW Day) is a national day of thanks for the many Tasmania State Emergency Services (TASSES) volunteers who support their local communities during flood, storm, landslide, road rescue, search and rescue, and more.

Show your support for SES volunteers by wearing something orange on Wednesday, 22 May.

Iconic landmarks in Tasmania and across the country will be ‘flooded’ in orange this WOW Day in support of SES volunteers, including in Hobart, the ABC Round-about.

Events and morning teas will also be held throughout the state.

There is one simple call to action for WOW Day: Wear Orange.
