999 Emergency Services Day
999 Emergency Services Day, Wednesday 19 October 2022
Emergency Services Day is a Government backed national day and is an opportunity for the country to shows its appreciation for those who work and volunteer in the NHS, police, fire, ambulance and search and rescue services.
Emergency Services Day formally begins at 9am when 999 Day flags are raised across the country, followed by two minutes’ silence to remember the more than 7,500 members of the emergency services killed in the line of duty.
999 Day is aimed at promoting efficiency and educating the public about using the services responsibly; it aims to promote emergency services charities; and to highlight the many different career and volunteer roles in the emergency services.
