A message from the Chairman of Epping Forest District Council, Cllr Darshan Sunger to say ‘thank you’ to the Heroes of the NHS and Emergency Services.
Chairman of Epping Forest District Council, Cllr Darshan Sunger said:
Celebrate Emergency Services Day (999 Day) and Show Your Support for the Heroes of the NHS and Emergency Services
Emergency Services Day (also known as 999 Day) is a national day celebrated across the UK to honour and appreciate the courageous men and women of the NHS and emergency services. This special day provides an opportunity for all of us to come together and show our support for their selfless dedication to keeping us safe and protecting our liberty.
999 Day serves as a platform to promote and support the invaluable work of our emergency services. It emphasises the responsible use of emergency services, educates the public about essential lifesaving skills, and encourages individuals to explore the diverse range of career and volunteering opportunities available within the emergency services family.
Volunteers are an integral part of the emergency services, playing a vital role in ensuring the safety and wellbeing of our communities. The 999 volunteer roles includes various positions, including Special Constables, Retained Firefighters, NHS Community Responders, St John Ambulance, RNLI, Search and Rescue, and Coastguard volunteers. Their commitment and contribution are instrumental in keeping Britain safe and secure.
Our emergency service personnel work tirelessly, 24-hours-a-day, 365 days of the year, to protect and safeguard our lives.
Today, we proudly raise the 999 Emergency Service Flag at the Civic Offices in Epping, symbolizing our deep appreciation for the heroic efforts of our emergency service personnel.
