There has always been a healthy interservice rivalry and banter between the different divisions of the emergency services – especially within the police force and fire service.
However, we have seen ‘evidence’ that firefighters at Walsall Fire Station have been setting traps for any police officers who happen to enter their station in need of a quick toilet break!
A tweet on the @WalsallFire account tried to explain the images by stating that: “The black hoods aren’t because it’s Halloween.
“This is Green Watch’s newest members practicing tying guidelines blindfolded.
However, I reckon what is really going on here, is that these firefighters are laying traps intended to snare unsuspecting police officers (and other emergency services personnel) who might happen to enter the fire station during a night shift for a quick toilet break.
What will happen to the ensnared police officers is anyone’s guess, but they could find themselves being made to do the washing up or end up being forced to make lunch for the firefighters whilst they wait for the next 999 call!
Even worse, the victims of the snare might even have to take part in simulated car crashes where they are forced into spinal boards having been cut out of cars!
If you have a partner who served in West Midlands Police and they are not off on time, then it could be because they have become a victim of one of these snares!

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?
