Emergency Services Day (999 Day)

 

More than 2 million people work and volunteer in the NHS and emergency services, today, including 250,000 first responders. They work in a range of jobs – from answering emergency calls to dealing with administration to practicing medicine, fighting fires, policing the streets and saving lives at sea and on mountains, lowland and in caves!

A 2 minutes silence will beheld at 9am (9th hour, 9th day, 9th month) to remember those NHS and emergency services personnel who have been killed as a result of their service to our nation.

Although confined to certain areas there are many emergency services, not just the ones we see daily. The Emergency services consist of

  •  Police Service
  •  Fire and Rescue Services
  •  Ambulance Services and the NHS
  •  HM Coastguard
  •  Independent Lifeboats and the RNLI
  •  Mountain Rescue
  •  Lowland Rescue
  •  Cave Rescue
