Wear orange to work today

BUNDABERG residents are encouraged to support the State Emergency Service (SES) on Wear Orange to Work Day.

Police, Fire and Emergency Services Minister Jack Dempsey said the orange SES uniform symbolised a dedication to community and the strength of volunteerism in Queensland.

"This is a great time for Queenslanders to thank our SES volunteers for the thousands hours of volunteer work they have performed last year," Mr Dempsey said.

Wear Orange to Work Day is part of this week's National SES Week.
