Having the largest combined emergency services following on social media, means that we get sent A LOT of content. In fact, in the last 28 days, we reached nearly 9 million people with the ‘stuff’ that we shared.
Most of our best & funniest content goes into our popular fortnightly eMagazine that is 100% free of any bizarre ‘community standards’ which can get you banned from posting on social media for DARING to share a picture of a naked bum.
In fact, it’s the ‘edgier’ content which we get sent in that gave us the idea for our eMagazine ‘S__ts & Giggles’ in the first place.
In summary, if it makes us smile, but would make a social media ‘moderator’ give one of our admins a ban, then it goes straight into S__ts & Giggles.
We get sent details of odd, outrageous and ridiculous calls which our emergency services oppos have to deal with all of the time. Not just oppos (colleagues) based in the UK, but also based in America, Australia, New Zealand and Canada.
And, if you do serve in the emergency services, then you might think that you have ‘seen it all’. I know that I used to think that until I started doing this gig.
Take the call below that was sent into us as a prime example:
The sender has asked us not to share the full details of the call publicly, but has given us permission to share it in the next issue of our eMagazine.
And we can see why!
There cannot be that many people out there who would call the emergency services for the reason outlined in this particular 999 call, the full details of which will be shared in the next issue of S__ts & Giggles.
And it’s not our aim or purpose to take the p__s out of people; Rather, we want to highlight to the world why, when they call 999 for a genuine emergency, then they might end up waiting hours for help to arrive.
Because chances are, the limited resources of the emergency services will be spending the vast majority of their time trying to ‘fix stupid’. And we all know, that stupid cannot be fixed.

Before you go...
We need your help. As former emergency services & armed forces personnel, we pride ourselves on bringing you important, fast-moving and breaking news stories & videos which are free from the negative bias which is often directed at the emergency services & NHS by some sections of the mainstream media.
One of the reasons we started 'Emergency Services News' back in 2018 was because we became tired of reading badly informed stories about the emergency services & NHS which seemed only ever to highlight negative aspects of the job.
We want to be the unheard voice of the remarkable men and women who serve in the emergency services, NHS and armed forces. And with around 500k page views each month, we are getting there!
