Some Hampshire Fire & Rescue Service Firefighters have stepped in to help their colleagues in the emergency ambulance service out after volunteering to clean their vehicles as the South Coast Ambulance Service medics were on a break.
The firefighters based at Redbridge Fire Station gave two emergency ambulances a much-needed wash down whilst their crews had a 30-minute break this morning, 19th January.
One of the firefighters who took part in the gesture of goodwill, FF Becks Bryant, tweeted:
‘Our hard working ambulance colleagues had a well earned 30 minute break this morning, so we cleaned their very dirty vehicles for them; they were very grateful as they don’t get the time’.
One member of the ambulance service tweeted:
‘Thanks to you all for doing this. It will be gratefully appreciated and is a lovely thing to do.’
Another added: ‘That’s just brilliant! Thank you for all you do x’

WE NEED YOUR HELP.Here at Emergency Services News, we aim to tell you stories that the mainstream media are not interested in reporting. Whilst the MSM love to berate and ridicule the emergency services, who is there to report on the realities of serving on the front line?
Emergency Services News is currently a loss-making entity. But our team of volunteers, all former emergency services personnel, do not do it for the money.
We do it because we are sick and tired of the mainstream media constantly trying to undermine the men and women who put their lives on the line to keep you and your family safe.
How many MSM journalists who speak ill of the emergency services have actually dared to don the uniform and risk their own lives to save the life of a complete stranger?
