Residents asked to wear orange

Byron Shire residents are being asked to wear something orange next Wednesday as a show of appreciation for the efforts of the volunteer men and women of the Mullumbimby Unit of the SES.


The ‘Wear Orange Day’ is all part of National SES Week.


Controller of the Mullumbimby Unit Noel McAviney said the Byron Shire community should be proud of the efforts of their local SES and should take the time to show their appreciation.


Mr McAviney said local SES members trained hard and were always ready to help and were often out in the worst of weather and in the dead of night.


“I challenge schools, businesses and institutions to get involved and encourage friends and colleagues to wear something orange to show their appreciation for their local SES volunteers,” he said.


State SES Commissioner Murray Kear said the past year had been an especially busy year for volunteer members who had worked hard to provide help, comfort and support for people affected by disaster.


“It is fitting that we take the time to acknowledge and to thank them,” he said.
