Whitsunday Regional Council has recognised the dedication of the local SES volunteers as part of today’s Wear Orange Wednesday (WOW), a national initiative aimed at recognising the efforts of SES volunteers across the country.
Mayor Andrew Willcox said that our SES volunteers are a vital element of emergency response and disaster recovery and their tireless efforts and contribution to the community do not go unnoticed.
“SES volunteers play a huge role within our communities and they are more than deserving of a special day to celebrate their contributions,” Mayor Willcox said.
“We want to publicly recognise and show our appreciation for their long term commitment to training and service and professionally responding to emergencies in our community,” he said.
“SES volunteers not only give their time and skills to assist the most vulnerable in their time of need but they assist at a variety of functions across the community.”
Local Whitsunday SES Controller Mark Connors and Whitsunday Regional Council employees who are also SES volunteers attended morning tea at the council meeting this morning in Proserpine as a thank you for their efforts.
