Emergency services to hold 'blue light serenade' at Surrey hospitals tonight

Published by Grace Mcgachy at 10:29am 16th April 2020.

People across Surrey and Hampshire will take to their doorsteps, windows and balconies again tonight (16 April) for another clap for carers display. 

Starting this week our emergency services will add their support with a 'blue light serenade' outside Surrey hospitals. 

Police vehicles, ambulances and fire engines will gather at each of the county's hospitals every week and simultaneously flash their blue lights in a coordinated display at 8pm.  

Clapping

It has been organised by local police, fire and ambulance officers along with hospital staff to show how the county is working together to tackle the coronavirus pandemic.

Deputy Chief Fire Officer, Dan Quin explained why they want to do the blue light serenade:  

“We wanted to make a statement of thanks to everyone involved in the fight against coronavirus across this county.

"Through Surrey’s Local Resilience Forum, partners have been working together in the most remarkable way to get things done to support our residents, and importantly our NHS colleagues and partners on the front-line.”

Assistant Chief Constable of Surrey Police, Alison Barlow, added:

We thought a weekly ‘Blue Light Serenade’ across the county would be a fantastic way to bring colleagues together to show our support to keyworkers across Surrey.  A huge thanks to everyone involved in making this happen.”

Royal Surrey

The hospitals involved include:

  • St Peter’s Hospital, Chertsey;  
  • Royal Surrey Hospital, Guildford;  
  • Frimley Hospital,
  • Camberley; 
  • East Surrey Hospital, Redhill;
  • Epsom Hospital
