It is a sad time when the emergency services are having to release and share videos asking people to refrain from abusing and assaulting them.
But that is exactly what West Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Service have had to now do owing to the frequency with which their firefighters are being abused and assaulted.
It is still too early to tell if the new Assaults on Emergency Services (Workers) Act is going to make any difference to the situation.
Anyone who assaults a member of the emergency services, in my own humble opinion, has some serious issues.
Not least because of their abhorrent attitude, but also because of the fact that when they see a brave member of the emergency services in uniform then they see them as a target!
In truth, the idiots who assault members of the emergency services are utter cowards.
It’s not as if emergency services personnel can deliver any ‘summary punishment’ to them for acting like an utter c__kwomble.
So instead, the emergency services are having to make and share videos asking people not to assault them.
Our #MoreThanAUniform campaign aims to open people’s eyes to the fact that if you attack a firefighter, you may be attacking a mum or dad, wife or husband, friend or neighbour.
Our crews have already experienced a handful of attacks this year.

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.
You can support emergency services news from as little as £1. It only takes a minute. Every contribution, however big or small, is vital for our future.
