  1. Sincere best wishes for you and all of your LAS colleagues during this troubled time.From a fellow paramedic in Cairns, Australia.

  2. From the looks of reports, the emergency services' emergency plans are running like clockwork.My heart goes out to all those affected – I've never been so glad to be living at the back end of nowhere.

  3. Hope you and yours are all OK. Be safe, Reynolds.Leader Blair has made a Speech to the Nation, and he's returning to London (temporarily) to Take Charge; so that's all right then (although he does plan to be back at Gleneagles in time for dinner with his chums, and Chirac).

    I'm coming to the end of my Tech course (not with LAS), and we are all spitting feathers that we were sent home today instead of being deployed, either to help directly or more likely, to cover for those crews that were sent to help in London (all our Officers have gone). Please don't misunderstand, this isn't some idiotic gung-ho desire for “glory” – we joined up to help, not to be told we're no use now that the brown stuff has hit the big whirly thing.

  4. Glad to see a post from you, Tom. Like another reader, one of my first thoughts was “I hope Tom's OK”. I'm thinking of you and your colleagues.Cat


  5. So glad to hear that you're ok Reynolds. My brother works for London Underground so I've spent most of the morning trying to call him to make sure he's ok (thankfully he's fine and is back home now)My heart goes out to everyone involved in this. The LAS sound like they're doing a fantastic job, looks like the emergency contingency plans you posted a while back have gone into full effect

  6. I would just like to say thank you to all the emergency service crews who have responed to todays events, I hope you all keep safe

  7. I can't think of anything to say except I am sorry. My thoughts are with all of you who have to deal with this. Hugs

  8. Kinda oddly relieving to see at least one London blogger has posted a something. Waiting for DG to do the same. A black day for London following such a triumph yesterday.

  9. I'm not familiar with England's geography so I don't know if you work somewhere distant from there. The first thing I thought when I heard of the blasts was “I bet Reynolds is there.”Truly a sad day, following Madrid's blasts.

    Al Qaeda again?

  10. Scary stuff from the news reports. Good luck Reynolds and to everyone else in London who has to deal with this terrible attack.

  11. Nice to see the immediate reaction of so many (even the politicians) was fairly calm, not going into panic mode and heading for the nearest bunker…

  12. A sad way to be reminded of the thanks we owe to you and all of our emergency service personnel in this country who deal with these horrific situations.Claire – Somerset

  13. Hope everyone you know are all okay…..A friend of mine at work was on the bus behind one of the ones that blew up. He is (understandably) a little shaken today…

    Reynolds: Are you being sent up to help out, or are you just sticking with doing your usual stuff? I never quite know what the emergency service procedures are in this kind of situation….

  14. I don't know what to say. As a Brit in Canada with lots of friends and family in London I'm trying to get as much info as I can – fortunately everyone seems to be safe. The Emergency Services are really doing a fantastic job, thank god for them.I hope everyone else has spoken to their loved ones. My heart goes out to everyone there.

  15. Be sure to take care of yourself whilst taking care of others. Thoughts for your country from Canada.- Janine (reflectivemusings.blogspot.com)

  16. Tom, It's great to know that people like you and the rest of the LAS are there to help my Colleagues and I on London Underground.Cheers buddy

  17. I used to live in London a couple of years ago. I like the town alot and this really gets to me :/

  18. Oh my God. My heart goes out to you and everyone in London. There really aren't the words to describe a tragedy such as this. My deepest sympathies.

  19. According to the bio page, he lives in Barking; I'd estimate that that's about 8 miles from Aldgate, the area of one of the Tube bombs.I was stood outside Aldgate bus depot trying to get to work this morning when the police started cordoning off the road and escorting dazed-looking people out on to the street…

  20. Holy crap man!I only just woke up, and I immediatley thought of you. Stay strong, and I'm sure London will weather this very well.

  21. good to hear from you Reynolds. glad to hear that your alright. best of luck to you and your coworkers. we are all thinking about you guys -from the alaskan paramedic

  22. I'd just like to offer my sincere admiration to you and your colleagues. I have been extremely impressed with the professionalism and calmness during the chaos today.

  23. yes, God Bless from the U.S. We know how it feels and I feel terrible you have to experience what we did years ago on that September day. Keep your heads up and pray…. Thank God you are still alive if you were involved… Good luck to all… we feel your pain. God Bless from an American friend

  24. In other words, the only way to get into central London from Barking is via Aldgate. Sherlock.


  25. coming from ealing but currently in japan i've been watching all the BBC news coverage, and am in awe of the way the emergency services have been handling this, our sincerest thanks and thoughts are with you. proud to be a londoner.Lydia
