Council hosts Flag Raising Ceremony to mark Emergency Services Day

September 12, 2018

Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council hosted a Flag Raising Ceremony at Lagan Valley Island to mark Emergency Services Day.  The Last Post and a 2 minute silence followed the Flag raising to show the Council’s deep appreciation for the variety and type of work carried out by the Emergency Services in the past, the present and the future. 

The Flag was a visible sign of the respect in which we hold the men and women who have devoted their careers and lives within the emergency services fields, at home and in other countries.
