I wonder if military-style but non-aggressive organizations exist? They would make sense... wait a bit, I have an idea. Are there backoffice, analytical jobs in the fire service? Not a frontline fireman/firewoman, but something sort of a strategist. Making plans for national disasters, stuff like that, but still a bit uniform-wearing stuff with ranks and whatnot.

Those jobs exist in the police force and I would be very surprised if most countries didn't have something like what you describe.
