When you serve on the front line of the emergency services, then small gestures of gratitude can often go a long way.
These gestures of goodwill from kind-hearted members of the public take many forms. Such as the offer of a free cup of tea or coffee as well as the occasional bag of chips.
One Paramedic based with the East of England Ambulance service came across a gesture of
And it wasn’t your usual free cup of tea or coffee.
Walking towards his RRV, paramedic Lee Thompson saw that someone had left a hand-written note on his vehicle.
Paramedic Lee Thompson tweeted:
‘On the South Yarmouth RRV today, after treating a patient went back to the car to find a note on the windscreen’
The hand written note said:
‘We came to clean windows of the house you were parked outside of, but we were unable to park.
‘So we parked somewhere else and cleaned your car windows!
‘Keep up the good work
‘TrueShine Window Cleaning’
Although emergency services personnel, and in particular the ambulance service, have been used to notes being left on their vehicles recently, it makes a nice change to be able to share the details of a positive note, rather than a rude one!

Before you go...
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? If you would like to help back our mission of reporting on fact-based news, then please consider helping to support us financially.
