Emergency Services Day 2020

2020 - Emergency Services Day logo

Wednesday 9 September 2020 marks the annual Emergency Services Day (999 Day) in the United Kingdom.

More than 2 million people work and volunteer in the NHS and other emergency services today, including 250,000 First Responders. They work in a variety of jobs from answering emergency calls, to dealing with administration, to practising medicine, fighting fires, policing the streets and saving lives at sea and on mountains, lowland and in caves.

West Berkshire Council is proud to support Emergency Services Day 2020 and will be holding a two minutes silence for staff at 9am on Wednesday 9 September 2020.

Councillor Graham Pask, Chairman of West Berkshire Council, said:

"This Emergency Services Day, let's send a huge thank you to those who have served in the NHS and emergency services - past and present."

Thank you for being there. #999Day
