Our commitment to the Armed Forces Covenant.
Kent Fire and Rescue Service (KFRS) is committed to supporting the Armed Forces community and recognises the value serving personnel, Reservists, Veterans and military families bring to our organisation. We strive to support the values of the Armed Forces Covenant in many ways, including:
Kent Fire and Rescue Service is responsible for delivering fire and rescue services to more than 1.8 million people in Kent.
As well as fires, the service deals with a wide range of incidents ranging from road traffic collisions to floods, cliff rescues to chemical spills.
Kent and Medway has a number of unique challenges. With more than 400km (250 miles) of motorway and major trunk roads, we are used to dealing with a huge range of hazardous and dangerous incidents. The county also has more than 225km (139 miles) of coastline, inland waterways and the busiest sea channel in the world which means we work closely with HM Coastguard and The Royal Air Force when called upon to deal with off-shore ship fires and rescues.
Kent also has a diverse range of industries including factories, processing plants, nuclear power generators and other potentially hazardous businesses.
We also aim to provide local people and businesses with the information and support they need to keep themselves, their homes and premises safe. We have a schools education team, an innovative Road Safety Experience Centre, a specialist team providing Safe and Well visits to vulnerable people in their own homes and a dedicated team of support staff who work hard to support us in areas such as IT, Finance, Administration and HR.
