CEREDIGION County Council is celebrating Emergency Services Day on 9 September to pay tribute to the millions of people who work and volunteer across the NHS and emergency services.
Emergency Services Day 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.
Volunteers are an essential part of the emergency services family and they play a core part in keeping Britain safe. 999 volunteer roles include; Special Constables, Retained Firefighters, NHS Community Responders, St John Ambulance, RNLI, Search and Rescue, and Coastguard volunteers.
Council Leader Ellen ap Gwynn, said: “Over the last year and a half, we have seen our emergency services risk their lives even more to protect our people and communities.
This is our opportunity to show respect and to thank them for the hard work that they do but also to remember those who have lost their lives in the line of duty. They are all truly amazing.”
In a show of support, the Council flags will be flown at the following locations:
Canolfan Rheidol, Aberystwyth
Canolfan Alun R.Edwards, Aberystwyth; and
County Hall, Aberaeron
