Perth, Australia (9 May, 2018) - Nissan Australia has signed as the exclusive motoring partner of the 2018 Australasian Police and Emergency Services Games (AP&ES Games).
Nissan is supplying a fleet of vehicles to the event - made up of Nissan’s most popular Navara, the ST Dual Cab, and the Nissan Pathfinder - which will be used in the lead up to, and during, the Games.
The Australasian Police & Emergency Services Games is a biennial multi-sport event aimed at first responders and other emergency services providers including; police, ambulance, fire brigade, SES, customs and protective services, A&E nurses, St Johns ambulance, the Royal Flying Doctors, and many more.
Held over seven days and staged in Mandurah - an hour south of Perth - between October 28 and November 3, it will attract over 3,000 entrants from 10 countries who will compete in AFL 9s, basketball, cricket, cycling, equestrian, fire truck pull, golf, netball, athletics and softball and many other individual and team sports.
“What a fantastic opportunity for Nissan to give back and support the extraordinary men and women from our law enforcement agencies and emergency services,” said Stephen Lester, Nissan Australia’s managing director.
