Girl Scout rescued from giant bush

A female Scout got stuck in undergrowth.

The schoolgirl could notfight her way free of the bush on Wednesday at 11.25am so called on firefighters for help.

An East Sussex Fire and Rescue statement said: “The Mobilising and Communication Centre received an emergency call regarding a Girl Scout, who was trapped in a large pile of fallen trees and undergrowth at Broadstone Warren, Wych Cross.

“One fire appliance from Forest Row was immediately dispatched to the scene. Crews carefully extricated the casualty, who was then taken to hospital by ambulance.

"The Mobilising and Communication Centre"

When Firemen served the public without a risk assessment before jumping into a puddle to save you, weren't these called Call Centres?

Wonder how much the "Re-branding" saved us....not

Yes the Boy Scout motto was "Be Prepared" but not sure what the Girl Guide motto was, or when they all became Scouts.

A well prepared scout would have had a large sheath knife at the very least, and probably one of those things to get stones out of a horse's hoof. Nowadays he'd get done for carrying an offensive weapon and have to rely on his mobile to call for help which is what this girl did.
