On 9 September at 9am, Sevenoaks District Council Chairman, Cllr Diana Esler, raised a flag in honour of all the frontline emergency service workers in the UK.
Emergency Services Day, or 999 Day, is not only a chance to support the heroic men and women of the NHS and emergency services but also promotes using the services responsibly, educates the public about basic lifesaving skills, and promotes the many career and volunteering opportunities available.
Cllr Esler says: “Our blue light services and emergency volunteers help protect and keep us safe on a daily basis, often putting themselves in harm’s way to help others. Today is a chance for us to say thank you.
“Throughout the pandemic we have relied heavily on our emergency services so it is an honour to celebrate the tremendous work they have done for the nation.”
