Orange is the new black

orange is the new black WOW

Show your support for our ACT State Emergency Service (ACTSES) volunteers by dusting off your best orange outfit on Wednesday 18 November.

The ACT Government is unique in Australia because it provides state level services such as health, education and public transport, and also municipal services such as mowing, cleaning and rubbish collection.

The annual Wear Orange To Work (WOW) Day is an opportunity for all Canberrans to say thank you for the selfless dedication ACTSES volunteers provide during storms, floods and other emergencies. They sacrifice family, work and personal time to help people in need.

You can participate in WOW Day by wearing orange, or dressing up workplaces and cars in orange. Share photos of your WOW Day efforts on social media using #WOWDay as a hash tag.

WOW Day is one of several activities as part of ACTSES Week 14-20 November.
