Council staff to Wear it Orange in support of SES

The community is encouraged to join Council staff in showing their support and appreciation for the volunteers of the NSW SES during Wear Orange Wednesday tomorrow, 19 May.

Lighting on Hurley Street, Campbelltown and Oxford Road, Ingleburn will be changed to orange and staff have been encouraged to wear orange throughout the day.

Wear Orange Wednesday is part of National Volunteer Week and is a NSW SES initiative calling on people to show their support for SES volunteers by sharing photos and videos of them wearing orange.

“Volunteers are the lifeblood of any community but over the past few years, the work of volunteers in the NSW SES and other emergency services has been particularly valuable during challenging circumstances such as floods and bushfires,” Mayor George Brticevic said.

“With the recent floods across the state, many of our local SES volunteers were hard at work, both within our community and in surrounding communities, keeping people safe, protecting property, managing flood water impacts and so much more,” Cr Brticevic said.

“Wear Orange Wednesday is our way of saying thank you to those volunteers and ensuring they get the acknowledgement they deserve so I encourage everyone in Campbelltown to join us and wear orange,” he said.

People can upload their video or photo to social media using the hashtag #thankyouSES to show their support.
