Busways will be turning orange for SES volunteers on WOW Day

20 Oct 2014

Busways will be acknowledging the hard work of our State Emergency Service (SES) volunteers by turning orange on 12 Novemberfor Wear Orange Wednesday (WOW Day).

Busways is supporting the event by encouraging bus drivers and the public to wear orange on the day, in honour of the colour worn by SES volunteers. SES mascot, Paddy the Platypus will also be making an appearance at Busways’ Mulgrave, Penrith and Blacktown Depot to raise more awareness for the event.

A number of activities held throughout NSW will mark the occasion. Busways will transform their website and Twitter account into orange alongside several state landmarks and icons in line with the colourful theme.

 “The SES volunteers who have dedicated their time and energy to assisting communities in times of emergency and recovery deserve special thanks and appreciation,” said Rob Gibson, Contract 1 Operations Manager for the Busways Group.

Skye Lever, a SES volunteer and bus driver at our Busways Mulgrave Depot, thinks WOW Day is a great initiative. “It’s a fun and simple way to recognise the outstanding work conducted by our SES volunteers, who have provided much needed assistance to the communities throughout Australia.”
