Sponsor Opportunities

As you will know, the Festival of Rescue is an annual, national contest pitting fire service teams from across the UK against one another in friendly competition in five areas. Some of the most skilled firefighters in the country will test their abilities in water rescue, rope rescue, vehicle extrication, trauma care and urban search and rescue, and do so in front of a live public audience.

Our aim is for the 2022 Festival to be the biggest and most interactive iteration yet, with greater public involvement and digital presence than ever before. We will be making use of a key site from the Birmingham Commonwealth Games to host the event, ensuring a truly eye-catching location. This is a fantastic opportunity for your organisation to help celebrate the UK Fire and Rescue Service in front of a large public and sector audience.

We are pleased to offer several sponsorship options to suit a range of budgets. Details will be outlined in a news item available soon in the near future.
