Echuca is just one stop on the Victoria SES ‘Convoy of Thanks’ visit to towns throughout Victoria this week.
In Victoria, SES volunteers responded to more than 28,000 emergency calls, and everyone is asked to spare a minute to thank them for their dedication.
Echuca SES communications officer Ian Marriott encouraged everyone to meet the convoy.
‘‘As the convoy gathers signatures it will grow into a moving tribute to our valued volunteers,’’ he said.
People can also show their support for SES volunteers by participating in Wear Orange Wednesday this week.
There are also prizes on offer for the best dressed individual, school and workplace.
Upload a photo of your efforts on the SES website at ses.vic.gov.au/thanks to go in the prize draw.
