Tribute To The Emergency Services

Tribute To The Emergency Services

Thursday 6th Aug 2020

A ceremony has been held by Denbighshire County Council to recognise the commitment and dedication of the local emergency services.

The annual Emergency Services Day is held on September 9th and is recognised nationally by the Government, the Welsh and Scottish governments, the Minister of State for Policing and the Fire Service, the First Ministers of Wales and Scotland, Former First Minister of Northern Ireland, and Members of Parliament. 

To commemorate the day, the 999 Emergency Services flag was raised at County Hall, Ruthin.

Chairman of Denbighshire, Councillor Meirick Lloyd Davies, said: “This national day provides us with a great opportunity to thank emergency services personnel for the dedicated service they provide to us all on a daily basis  to not only protect our safety but to ensure our health and well-being.  

“Our emergency services provide sterling work and often in difficult and challenging circumstances, twenty four hours a day. The creation of this special flag flying day is a small but important way for the whole nation to recognise and support their  immense contribution to society by providing a safe and supported environment for us all.

“We were delighted and honoured to be supporting this very worthwhile day today”.
