star this property answer text <p>We do not keep data on redeployment opportunities for firefighters. If a person has a permanent medical condition preventing them undertaking their role, they would be eligible for ill health retirement.<br><br>The role of firefighters has changed dramatically over recent years. Firefighters engage in more specialist roles and work more closely with the community to prevent fires and reduce other risks. More diverse roles demand new approaches to workforce management and these provide the opportunities for a more diverse workforce, including older workers, bringing a wider range of skills and experience to bear in serving their communities, and a more sophisticated approach to measuring operational fitness.</p> more like this
