Fling open your closet doors and hunt for anything that is orange, even if it's not your colour, to show thank you.
The New South Wales State Emergency Service is encouraging everyone in the community to wear the colour for Wear Orange Wednesday, held today as a tribute to the hard work of its volunteers.
Tristan McDonell, fondly known to everyone as TJ, has been a member for more than 18 months," she said.
"My husband was a member so I decided to sign up and have had a ball doing it," she said.
"We were thrown in the deep end because shortly after qualifying a big storm came through."
Ms McDonell said it was strange to be out in the field, but incredible to be able to lend a hand to the community.
"We are one big family here," she said.
"If anyone wants to come join us we train on Wednesday nights at 6.30pm at the rear of 208 Fernleigh Road."
Mum of four Nikola Kinder also signed up more than 18 months ago and despite being on maternity leave for a lot of it found ways to help put.
"I came down to help out sandbagging and I enjoyed it so much I signed up to be a volunteer," she said.
"Even on maternity leave I would pop in and say hello."
Mrs Kinder said her children are learning about the SES and it was important they knew the role the organisation played.
"The SES is made up of very different volunteers, all of whom dedicate their free time to help," she said.
NSW SES Commissioner Kyle Stewart says wearing orange on May 22 is an opportunity to acknowledge the hardworking SES Volunteers.
"This is just a small way local communities can show their appreciation for these amazing everyday people who put on their orange overalls to help people during the most difficult time in their lives," he said.
"It's also a time to acknowledge those who support our volunteers - their families, friends and employers - to help communities in need."
Whether you're heading to work, school, gym or even the beach throw on something orange to show how much you appreciate them. It's as easy as wearing an orange tie, a ribbon in your hair or even orange socks.
On May 22, show your thanks for the NSW State Emergency Service. Put on a splash, or a lot, of orange and take a photo and post on social media with #thankyouses.
