I just wonder why our emergency services are not equipped with the sort of big, huge inflated cushions such a I have seen used in the States.

There, people have jumped to safety from huge heights out of burning buildings.

It can't be the expense 'cos I don't suppose they would cost more than a few quid each.

There must be a reason why they are not used but I can't see it.

Think of the lives that could have been saved.

Ding Dong, can I just say, you are a right tw*t, personally I think you are DOA. The woman who dropped her baby from the 10th floor, so that baby could live and sacrificed her own life, so little trolls like you can type on sites like this.

You have no shame, people like you never do.

Poor Butch. With a shit-clogged brain like a sewer pipe it is understandable that he finds things difficult to understand.

He reads, and will take umbrage, from almost everything, which is a shame because there is much to think on posted here, sometimes.

Like my simple piece suggesting that inflated billows might have saved some lives.

In bad taste? I don't think so.

DOA? Dead on arrival?

Look up the cuts to the London Fire Brigade.

".. you and your party have treated us in the fire brigade with contempt. My crew who got the shout at 1am this morning and finally went off duty at 5 this afternoon will still have to go in duty at 8 tonight.

"This is because there's no extra resources to cover for them. They will be like zombies, best of all most will be working part time over the next few days to make up a wage that you've cut every year for 8 years now.

"So when you're giving out your meaningless praise for our emergency services, remember we hold you in total contempt."

Got your message, twice and I am with you and full of sympathy but.......I just innocently asked why these big inflated cushions are not a part of your kit?

Why don't you ask the powers that be? Perhaps they don't have enough money for them after £100m pounds worth of cuts in London alone.

What's the official name for those pads? I can't find anything online.

There must have been a decision not to deploy them at some point. They've been around for ages so the current round of cuts can't be the reason and I haven't heard of any one in the fire services lobbying for their use in the UK.
