Those familiar with the Emergency Service Cake fining system will be aware of the various unofficial rules and regulations regarding day-to-day conduct whilst at work.
However, we think that we might have stumbled over an ‘offence’ against the Cake Fine Act that might fall outside of anything that has previously been listed as an ‘offence’.
@ResponseWMP tweeted over the weekend how they had, well, pulled over an ambulance because the ambulance did not have its headlights lights on….
Anyone who drives a vehicle that has a constantly illuminated dashboard will confirm that, in areas where the roads are also well lit, remembering to turn your lights on can be a bit of an ‘issue’.
I would have loved to of heard the conversation that took place between the ambulance crew when they realised that they were being signalled by the police to stop…
The tweet shared by @ResponseWMP said:
‘When you pull @OfficialWMAS over for not having their headlights on #Cakes’
IN response, @WMASSTStarkey said:
‘ermmmmmm and shall we discuss the job we just attended with you guys? Cake can be sent to Tash & Marek @ Hollymoor at the earliest convenience – thanks!’
Another twitter user was quick to point out that the exchange was quickly turning into a ‘blue-on-blue’ incident by saying (@Shanem) :
‘Blue on blue, repeat blue on blue’
So what is the suitable cake fine for being pulled over by your colleagues? We are thinking maybe some french fancies or perhaps some slices of millionaire shortbread?

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.
