I am raising funds for charity; can the fire service donate a prize or take part in an event?



View all FAQs

The fire service is committed to emergency response and community safety; therefore, we do not always have the capacity to support charitable events other than our support for The Firefighters Charity.

For other charity events, our support is entirely discretionary, the Station Commander for that area has the final say, taking into account other station and emergency activities. If you wish your charity event to be considered for fire service attendance, please contact your local station for details. This can be done via our fire stations page.

Please be aware that if we are able to assist you, a share of the profits we help generate, normally 51% will be donated to the “Firefighters charity”.

Unfortunately, we are unable to donate prizes to charitable causes and are also unable to provide a fire engine to escort charitable runners and walkers.
