Region's ambulance Trust to mark inaugural #999DayUK
Date: 06 September 2018
The work of the region’s blue light services will be celebrated this weekend to mark the inaugural Emergency Services Day on Sunday (9th September).
The Trust will be taking to social media to give the public an insight into its work, alongside other emergency services colleagues, who will all be using the hashtag #999DayUK.
Announced by Prime Minister Theresa May last week, the national day will be held annually and pay tribute to those who work tirelessly in our 999 services.
It begins at 9am to represent the 9th hour of the 9th day of the 9th month and will be used to promote efficiency in the emergency services, to educate the public about using the emergency services responsibly and to promote volunteering opportunities across the emergency services.
Often people think of the firefighters, paramedics and police officers when they think of 999 services. However, the huge network of other staff behind the scenes all play a vital role in keeping our communities safe and we hope the day will highlight the width and breadth of the work we do.
Follow us on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook and check out the hashtags #WeAreEEAST and #999DayUK.
The region's ambulance Trust will mark the first Emergency Services Day with a feast of information on social media.
