Army engagement team visit Highfields

Posted on 14 February 2024

Soldiers from the British Army's Engagement Group (AEG) recently visited Highfields Fire Station to learn more about the fire and rescue service.
The Army engagement team are a group of regular soldiers from various regiments who engage with schools and community groups to educate them about career opportunities in the British Army.
The team visited on 29 January and received a warm welcome from crews at Highfields and staff from the On Call support team.
The aim of the visit was for Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service to build on its relationships with the military and consider the fire and rescue service as a potential employer when they finish their military career.
During the course of the morning, the soldiers were briefed on the JESIP principles - which sets out standard practice for how different agencies should work together on an incident.
The team took part in the firefighter fitness test, breaking and entry and were shown around the fire appliances and kit.
Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service is a proud supporter of the Armed Forces Covenant and works hard to support the Armed Forces community all year round.
Organiser of the event, Firefighter Oli Wright, said: "I want to thank the soldiers who joined us for this engagement and for how they all got stuck in to the different activities we laid on.
"As a veteran and current Reservist, the fire and rescue service offers a good avenue for those in the military to use their skills after serving and to develop new ones in a rewarding career. 
"If anyone is interested in a future career as a firefighter, please visit our website."
