The Council is delighted to be supporting Emergency Services Day (Thursday, September 9). Also known as 999 Day, it is a nationwide awareness day promoting the work carried out by all emergency services, 365 days a year, 24 hours a day.
The Council would like to take this opportunity to thank all emergency service workers for looking after us in our times of need.
It is also a time to pay tribute to all volunteers who are an essential part of the emergency services family, each playing a key role in keeping the country safe – volunteers such as Special Constables, Retained Firefighters, NHS Community Responders, WRVS, St John Ambulance, RNLI, Search and Rescue and Coastguard.
During the past 18 months, all emergency services have been extremely busy dealing with the global pandemic, which has affected all our lives. They remain very busy and the public is advised to call 999 for emergencies only.
Councillor Jill Bonetto, Mayor of Rhondda Cynon Taf, said: “I want to take this opportunity to say thank you to our fantastic emergency services workers across our County Borough, Wales and further afield.
“These are the people we all turn to in our hour of need, people who often go above and beyond to ensure our safety and our welfare.
“Our emergency services have operated throughout the pandemic, in very challenging circumstances. Please join me in showing your support to them on National Emergency Services Day 2021."
Please support National Emergency Services Day on Thursday, September 9.
