Often, our much-loved and highly-valued followers send us in stories and images from across the internet which feature our oppos in the emergency services.
And this story, is one such example!
During a routine check of our inbox, the following message was found by one of our admins:
“As someone who flies drones with emergency services, can we please establish a cake fund for the fire officers who have to deal with the imbecile (that’s an English translation from the northern irish phrase “f__king t__ts”) public drone pilots?
“Perhaps if i climb onto my roof i can call 999 and get a hand cleaning the gutters when they come to rescue me?”
With the message, was the picture that now adorns the top of this article. The picture itself was shared by a ‘Facebooker’ with the following message:
“A little bit of action across the road from our house today.
“There was a wedding in the church, somebody from the wedding party was filming it using a drone.
“Apparently, his drone operating was not up to scratch and he flew it into a tree. No worries, the smart young chap climbed up to get it and make a name for himself with the ladies…
“A little time later, there were two things stuck in the tree and the fire department was summoned.
“Never a dull moment in Stony Stafford”
As our follower pointed out, perhaps individuals who are responsible for such ‘mishaps’ should be ‘gently encouraged’ to pay into a colossal cake fund that can then be shared out equally amongst all sections of the emergency services / NHS?
If not a cake fund, then maybe a Christmas party fund instead that can then be used to host one massive party for the members of the emergency services who get sent to calls which have come about as a result of other peoples silliness.
It is at this point that we should mention that we have a subscriber only eMagazine called ‘Shits & Giggles‘ where the original communications from this exchange of messages will be shared.

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 which are free from the negative bias which is often directed at the emergency services by some sections of the mainstream media.
One of the reasons we started 'Emergency Services News' was because we became tired of reading badly informed stories about the emergency services 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!
As income from ads, the mainstay source of income for most publishers, continues to decline; we need the help of our readers.
And remember, if you have a service, product or job vacancy that you would like to promote to our large readership, then you can buy advertising space in our articles.
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.
Please help us to continue to highlight the life-saving work of the emergency services, NHS and armed forces by becoming a supporter.
