Jerome Gardner popped the question at the Jamaica Fire Brigade's recent graduation parade.

Jerome Gardner recently celebrated a milestone.

He and over 100 others participated in the graduation parade of the Jamaica Fire Brigade last June.

But the event also set up Gardner for another major life-changing moment - after his girlfriend Zoey Green accepted his marriage proposal.

Watch as Corporal Jason Kennedy captured the moment.

Zoey beamed: “It’s my second time being at a fire brigade graduation. This one, however, was a bit more exciting with the drills. As for the proposal, it was unexpected. We've always talked about marriage but for him to propose at that moment was very special”.

For his part, Gardner thanked his platoon and training staff who helped him pull off the proposal.
