Emergency Services Day

What is Emergency Services Day?


The Emergency Services Day will begin at 9am on 9th September annually (9th hour of the 9th day of the 9th month) with two minutes’ silence to remember emergency services personnel killed as a result of their duties.

Our aim is simple, to promote the work of the emergency services, promote efficiency, educate the public, and promote volunteering opportunities. Volunteers are an essential part of the emergency services and they play a core part in keeping Britain safe. Such volunteering roles include; Special Constables, Retained Firefighters, NHS Community Responders, St John Ambulance, RNLI, Search and Rescue and Coastguard volunteers.

Whilst we are part of the Emergency Services Memorial, the 999 Day is an excellent opportunity for other emergency services charities to fundraise, raise their profile and participate in this event. Inspired by the Armed Forces Day, we are proud to support and promote the excellent work carried out by our emergency services across all four corners of the UK.
