Damien West - AFD Flag

​Monday 21 June marked the beginning of Armed Forces Week, which also celebrates Reserves Day today and Armed Forces Day on Saturday 26 June.

In a show of support, some stations will be flying the Armed Forces Day flag.

It is a chance to show support for the Armed Forces community such as serving troops, Service families, veterans and cadets.

Area Manager Damien West represented us at the Nottinghamshire Armed Forces Day flag raising ceremony at Nottinghamshire County Hall.

Speaking after the ceremony, Area Manager West said: “I am really proud to represent Nottinghamshire Fire & Rescue Service and be here today as a Gold Award employer.

“This event marks the start of our celebrations as a Service in thanking the Armed Forces community for all they do to keep our communities and country safe.”
