WOW is a frequent exclamation for the work of the State Emergency Service (SES) and today Ipswich residents can wear orange clothing to show their support for our region's volunteers.

Wear Orange Wednesday (WOW) is a chance for all Australians to say thank you to the great men and women of our SES who volunteer day-in day-out when we need them most.

SES volunteers in the Ipswich City Council region were at the heart of flood rescue and recovery work in 2011 and Federal Member for Blair Shayne Neumann paid tribute to their devoted service to Ipswich and the Somerset Region.

"The bright orange uniform of our SES volunteers is a welcome site in our community when disaster strikes," he said.

WOW day is part of a SES week, a nationwide celebration of SES volunteers.

You can show your appreciation by thanking the SES on their Facebook page at facebook.com/QldSES.
