Lord Mayor of Exeter praises the work of our emergency services

Published: 8 September 2023

The Lord Mayor met members of the emergency services to thank them on behalf of the city

The Lord Mayor of Exeter has praised the work of all members of the emergency services who put their lives on the line to keep us safe every day.

It comes as the country marks Emergency Services Day - also known as 999 Day – which is a chance for people to show support and appreciation for the men and women of the emergency services.

Emergency Services Day promotes the work of the services, promotes using the emergency services responsibly, educates the public about basic lifesaving skills and promotes the many career and volunteering opportunities available.

Lord Mayor Cllr Kevin Mitchell met with members of the police, fire and rescue service and the NHS to pass on the city’s thanks for the work they do.

Cllr Mitchell said: “When our lives are going well, we do not necessarily think that there are people in the background who work 24 hours a day, seven says a week and 365 days a year to ensure we and our loved ones are kept safe and well.

“But when we need them, we are so grateful for the men and women who are part of our emergency services, and I want to thank them all.

“Emergency Services Day is your day – but please be assured that I, and all of Exeter, appreciate everything you all do all year around. So please accept our gratitude, pat yourselves on the back and keep up your amazing work.”
