Many members of the emergency services are passionate about supporting various charities.
Such a desire to help others forms a big part of why so many brave and dedicated men and women sign up to serve on the front line of the emergency services.
Much of the charitable work that is carried out by emergency services personnel, often in their own time, takes place behind-the-scenes but the amount raised each year for charity is considerable.
The problem is trying to raise enough awareness about the various good causes which are supported by the emergency services and the NHS.
However, with a little bit of ‘professional’ choreography and a decent sound track, emergency services personnel can often come together in order to produce a show that would not look out of place in the West End.
And the video below, is just one such example.
Earlier on today, we were contacted by a colleague with the following message:
‘Hello… Nottinghamshire firefighters and police officers have made and launched a video.
‘Although it is to highlight Cancer Research UK and the F
“The video is just something we did for fun. Any chance of it being shared?
“It may put a smile on some hard working ES staff and that’s all that matters on difficult days.’
Check out the video below and please share it with your friends and colleagues.
Please also check out their website to find out more about what they are doing and why and remember to show them some support:

Before you go...
We need your help. As former emergency services & armed forces personnel, we pride ourselves on bringing you important, fast-moving and breaking news stories which are free from the negative bias which is often directed at the emergency services by some sections of the mainstream media.
One of the reasons we started 'Emergency Services News' was because we became tired of reading badly informed stories about the emergency services which seemed only ever to highlight negative aspects of the job.
We want to be the unheard voice of the remarkable men and women who serve in the emergency services, NHS and armed forces. And with around 500k page views each month, we are getting there!
As income from ads, the mainstay source of income for most publishers, continues to decline; we need the help of our readers.
And remember, if you have a service, product or job vacancy that you would like to promote to our large readership, then you can buy advertising space in our articles.
You can support emergency services news from as little as £1. It only takes a minute. Every contribution, however big or small, is vital for our future.
Please help us to continue to highlight the life-saving work of the emergency services, NHS and armed forces by becoming a supporter.
