Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service (RBFRS) hosted the latest Armed Forces Veterans’ Hub Event, which took place on Tuesday,14 May 2024, at Crowthorne Community Fire Station.

The Armed Forces Veterans’ Hub events are open to all veterans.

Lee Arslett, ICT Service Delivery Manager, Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service, said: “I attended the event as I am an RAF Veteran myself. It was an honour to be there amongst the Armed Forces Community, and lovely to see RBFRS showing support to that community.”

“I was pleased that so many organisations offering support to the Armed Forces were able to attend and showcase the range of support that is available for Veterans.”

The Armed Forces Veterans’ Hub was launched in the Royal County of Berkshire on 7 November 2020 following receipt of the Gold Award in the Ministry of Defence’s Employer Recognition Scheme. This affirms the Fire Authority and Service’s ongoing commitment to the Armed Forces community.
