South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service has been recognised for its commitment and dedication to the region’s Reserve Forces,
The service received a special certificate of support, signed by the Chief of the Defence staff and the Secretary of State for Defence - one of only 80 presented each year.
Neil Hessell, Assistant Chief Fire Officer, said: “We are delighted to be recognised in this way and are very proud to be supporting the Reserve Forces.
“Not only do reservists provide a vital role to our Armed Forces, but we and our employees also benefit enormously from the transferable skills they learn, particularly in decision-making, leadership and team work. Ultimately this means better personal development for the employee and a better business for all.”
