Date: 7th September, 2020
Emergency Services Day (999 Day) is a Government backed national day across the UK which takes place on 9th September each year. It is your chance to show your support for the selfless men and women who work and volunteer in the NHS and emergency services.
#999Day promotes the work of the emergency services, promotes using the emergency services responsibly, educates the public about basic lifesaving skills, and promotes the many career and volunteering opportunities available.
We will be holding a two minutes’ silence at 9am on 9th September (9th hour of the 9th day of the 9th month) to remember the more than 7,500 members of the emergency services who have been killed as a result of their duties. It is followed by the 999 Day flag being raised.
