The event will be attended by the Minister of State for Policing and the Fire Service, Rt Hon Nick Hurd MP and personnel from across the emergency services.

The second event is an ‘Emergency Services Day, similar to the successful Armed Forces Day. The 999 Day will take place on 9th September, beginning at 9am (9th hour of the 9th day of the 9th month). The 999 Day will consist of a national media campaign (#999DayUK / @Official999Day) and a series of events across the country. The number of events will grow year-on-year, with the first 999 Day taking place on Sunday 9th September 2018 at Heaton Park, Manchester between 09:00am and 16:00pm.
