They are there for us in a flash orange and helping us when we need them the most. So what and who are they?
They are the State Emergency Services (SES) and in the Nowra area, and all over NSW, they are manned by a wonderful group of volunteers.
Wednesday, May 22 is Wear Orange to Work day and the idea is to encourage as many people as possible show their support to wear orange.
The NRMA will support the Nowra SES with a static display for four days, from Monday, May 20, and the Shoalhaven City Council will have a display in the Nowra administration centre for three days from Tuesday, May 21,
The SES on Wednesday, May 22 we will have a meet and greet in Nowra's Jelly Bean park and intend to have several volunteers present, plus some of our equipment, and encourage people to realise help is always required, no matter your fitness level.
Nowra media liaison officer Jacqui Gilmore said the day was a simple way to say thank you to the SES volunteers.
Known as the Orange Angels, the SES is there in times of emergency. People usually come across them at the worst of times, but the personnel are there doing wonderful things.
"I really admire the volunteers when they go out in all weather conditions to help others in need," Ms Gilmore said.
"I get to sit in a warm office but they are out there working.
"And you have to remember all the Nowra SES members are volunteers.
"Some are working, we have a lot who are retired and we would like to get a younger people to join as well.
"All training is provided and members can come proficient in a wide variety of roles.
"It's not only about working out in the rain, the winds and the floods, but there are also roles for everyone, things like organisation and communications."
As we head into winter and the SES is trying to encourage people to be proactive, not reactive.
"Look at your homes and see what might need to be done," Ms Gilmore said.
While there have not been any drastic episodes so far this year, the local SES has had over 70 calls for help, plus a few requests to help police search for missing persons, as well as searching for evidence.
