I suspect the person behind this decision has never attended a real fire.

It's obviously time all old cartoons, cartoon characters were re looked at to ensure nobody could be offended and they are gender neutral and everything else you can think of.

Where do you start with Snow White?

Re: Fire chiefs BAN brigade's Fireman Sam mascot

They have decided to stop using it, but for the Mail and it's "readers" BAN is more emotive and we must have a red faced, spittle spattered, fist shake mustn't we.

So, if I decide to stop using Heinz Ketchup, will I actually be banning it?

Whatever word they used the reason behind the decision doesn't change.

Any thoughts on the reason for not using that mascot?

Re: Fire chiefs BAN brigade's Fireman Sam mascot

I'll have to hide my copy of 'little black sambo' soon. Anyone remember this? We were read it at infant school. I remember something about a tiger running round a tree so fast that it turned into butter.

Re: Fire chiefs BAN brigade's Fireman Sam mascot

I don't think this is News.... just another space filler and a way for the Tabloids to attack progressive people working on behalf of parents ...... in supporting and encouraging positive role models for children in their formative years , showing the opening up all Professions to their daughters as well as their sons.

Its because old ideas still abound in relation to women in jobs that were once perceived as "Men's Jobs"..... seen recently in the case Deputy chief constable Ms Swann, who led the operation to evacuate the town of Whaley Bridge flooding, these same tabloids were more interested in Chief Constables hairstyle, being to punky and should be sent home . Looks would never be brought up connection to a mans ability to do the job...

Whilst these anomalies happen then education is still needed ,and how better than catching them when they are young with positive role models both male and female .... Maybe the Fire service was clumsy in their PR, could have, rather than open themselves to Tabloids ire , and the “snowflake” insult popularised by the alt right they could easily have added a Samantha firefighter along with Sam, but maybe their preference was promote a modern Fire service and drop cartoons....

Their mascot, their choice, you dont see much of World Cup Willie or Tivvy. or the Esso Tiger these days but hardly news
It is nothing but a promotional image, why get annoyed, there are more pressing things in life than the demise of a cartoon character.

Pure tabloid manipulation , time folks sussed this out.
