Romford Care Home hosted an Emergency Services Day (also known as 999 Day) on Friday, September 8th to honour the dedicated work of the three main emergency services; Police, Ambulance, and Fire Brigade.
Founded in 2016 by Police Officer Tom Scholes-Fogg, the aim of the day is to promote using the emergency services responsibly, educate the public on lifesaving skills, and promote careers in the services.
The team and residents at the Nursing, Dementia and Nursing Dementia home in Romford, Havering have always supported their local ‘Blue Light Heroes’ previously holding ‘Blue Light Cafes’ and giving out wellbeing hampers.
Over the last three years the home has honoured and recognised the dedication of not only the main emergency services but also other local services such as the District Nurses and Hospital Transport Teams.
This year the team also wanted to recognised individual residents who themselves were part of the emergency services or NHS.
The artwork created on the day will be presented to local Blue Light Hero’s in the Romford, Havering Area.
