Everyone welcome to emergency services day

Stockport Council is pleased to be supporting this event which is being held to mark the hard work and dedication of emergency services workers.

Similar to the popular Armed Forces Day, Emergency Services Day or 999 Day will take place on Sunday 9th September, beginning at 9am (9th hour of the 9th day of the 9th month) at Heaton Park, Manchester M25 2SW between 9am and 4pm.

The 999 Day promotes volunteering in the emergency services, advises the public about using the services responsibly, teaches life-saving skills, and promotes the work emergency services do on a daily basis.

Cllr Sheila Bailey, Cabinet Member for Communities and Housing at Stockport Council, said: “All communities, across the country, are indebted to the men and women who serve in our emergency services. This is a great opportunity to show support and respect for the work they do, to learn new skills and learn more about the services on which we all rely."
