This is the 2nd most rediculous use of a firefighters time I've seen now, the other day someones pet puppy dog got its head stuck in a hanging basket and the fire crews had to go and chop the hanging basket off of it, surely right the owners of the dog could have done so themselves, and also the owners of this pub could have arranged there own way to remove that "dangerous" sign, if it was that dangerous why hasn't it fallen down already, its not the fire crews jobs to do meaningless tasks like this, their here to fight fire and cut people out of crashed cars not take down signs and rescue dogs or a cat from a tree etc
