We’ll be flying the 999 Flag on Friday, September 9 to mark Emergency Services Day and lighting up the Guildhall in blue at 9pm.
#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.
The 999 Emergency Services Day:
- Promotes our 999 heroes who serve/have served.
- Promotes career and volunteer opportunities across the emergency services.
- Promotes using the emergency services responsibly.
- Educates the public on essential life-saving skills.
- Promotes emergency services charities and the work they do.
- Promotes campaigns being run by frontline emergency services.
Leader of the Council, Cllr Mark Pritchard, said: “On behalf of everyone in Wrexham I would like to thank every serving and former member of the emergency services for their selfless dedication to duty, their bravery and their passion for the job they do here in Wrexham and across the country.”
Chief Executive, Ian Bancroft, echoed these words and said “We should all take a few minutes on Monday to reflect on what the emergency services mean to us, how we rely on them in a 999 situation and how we can encourage everyone to be respectful of the job they do and to be grateful that they are there should we need them in an emergency.”
