Bromsgrove District Council will be flying the flag on Sunday (Sept 9) to mark national Emergency Services Day.

Known as 999 Day and inspired by Armed Forces Day, it is aimed at promoting good citizenship and the effectiveness and efficiency of the emergency services.

Bromsgrove District Council Chairman, who is supporting the flag flying, said: “I am delighted that the hard work of our emergency services is being recognised and I hope this national event becomes more of a success each year.”
