If you saw an influx of men and woman dressed in orange suits last month, don’t be alarmed, the Victorian State Emergency Service (SES) launched the National SES Week in Southbank.

The launch featured demonstrations of what the SES can do, Melbourne Tigers players, cheerleaders and a sausage sizzle.

The SES also collected signatures of thanks to its volenteers.

SES Deputy Chief Officer Operations, Tim Wiebusch, said the event was a great opportunity to remind the public of the work undertaken by the SES.

“It truly is great to see so many members of the community stopping by today to acknowledge our amazing volunteers by signing a note of appreciation onto our Convoy of Thanks,” Mr Wiebusch said.

“The Road Crash Rescue demonstrations were also of particular interest to passers-by who formed large crowds each time we displayed what we hope they will never have to personally experience.”
