‘There’s Too Much Noise’ – Irate Resident Moans About Sirens

I often use to almost feel sorry for the people who lived on the same street as my old police station. My old Borough (Met Police) was a constant melody of police, ambulance and fire service sirens. Considering that my old Borough alone probably used to get, on average, around 10-15 999 calls per hour, then not more than a

WATCH: Ninja Training For Medics Gets Underway…But Isn’t Going Well

Before you watch this video and ‘kick off’ claiming that this medic “should be working” or before you make the silly statement about “So that’s where my taxes go” just remember, that there is a period BEFORE a shift starts as well as when a shift ENDs and there is something even rarer known as a BREAK.

After years on the streets gaining vital experience (unless you are a direct entry detective of course) and having spent too much money on that tailor-fitted suit, then a newly qualified detective is often as keen as mustard to get to that first ‘proper’ job.

WATCH: How Paramedics Become Elite HART Paramedics

Hazardous Area Response Team (HART) Paramedics are renown throughout the emergency services family for their ability to get to where no other paramedic can easily go.

As Our ‘News’ Website Hits 1 MILLION Views In 8-Months, We Ask: Where’s The Love?

When we set up Emergency-Services.News towards the end of the first quarter of this year (2018), we did so because we wanted to help to create a ‘voice’ for the emergency services / NHS.

How To Prevent Vehicles From Failing To Stop For The Police

When wrong’ uns decide that they do not want to stop for the police and end up thrashing through the streets like lunatics, then countless lives are put at considerable risk by the selfish and cowardly actions of these drivers who make off. However, we now think that we have perhaps found the answer: a police tank! If someone decided

It’s A Sad Day When The Metropolitan Police Have To Raise Funds By Selling Merchandise.

I have a lot of love for the Metropolitan Police, having spent a number of years on a 999 response team working on a busy East London borough. Despite also doing a stint in the armed forces, I would say that the camaraderie in the Met Police was well on-par with what I experienced in the armed forces. So it

What’s The Cake Fine For An Ambulance Being Pulled Over By The Police?

Those familiar with the Emergency Service Cake fining system will be aware of the various unofficial rules and regulations regarding day-to-day conduct whilst at work. However, we think that we might have stumbled over an ‘offence’ against the Cake Fine Act that might fall outside of anything that has previously been listed as an ‘offence’. @ResponseWMP tweeted over the weekend
