DECKED out in colourful garb for Wear Orange Wednesday (WOW Day) last week, Cumberland Mayor Greg Cummings and Deputy Glenn Elmore thanked local state emergency service (SES) personnel, including David Brownlow and Suzy Whitworth, for giving so much of their time to volunteer helping others in need.

All SES volunteers devote a considerable amount of time to skills development and training to ensure they are capable to effectively carry out the diverse range of tasks that come with being part of a dynamic and trusted volunteer emergency service. On WOW Day, the simple concept of wearing orange shows they are valued by the communities they support and keep safe.
