Staff from the service will observe two minutes’ silence at 9am tomorrow to mark Emergency Services Day. The event, also known as 999 Day, is a national celebration and commemoration held across the UK on the ninth day of the ninth month.
The event recognises the service of all emergency organisations including police, fire and ambulance, NHS community responders, St John Ambulance, the RNLI, volunteer search & rescue teams, and the Coastguard.
The silence at 9am honours all those who have lost their lives as a result of their service to the nation. More information about Emergency Services Day can be found at www.999day.org.uk
The service will also be supporting the National Fire Chiefs’ Council in observing a minute’s silence on Saturday 11 September, to mark the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks in the United States. This commemoration will be held at 1.46pm, the time the first tower of the World Trade Center was attacked.
