UK train crash emergency crew helped by Scientology VMs.

25 February 2007 · Category: VM

Scientology Volunteer Ministers dispatched from Manchester and Edinburgh to the Cumbrian crash scene worked through the night and the next day helping police and emergency crews.

The 20 Volunteer Ministers provided food, water and a change of clothing as well as their trademark Scientology "Assists" to help relieve stress and weariness to tired emergency service personnel.

Similar to the London bombings of 2005, there were no walking injured or crash survivors in the site, they had all been transported to hospitals or to their destinations so help was limited to emergency staff at the scene.

Reports in so far show that their deployment has been successful with tremendous appreciation from the authorities and local residents. One senior police official on duty at the crash scene had worked with the Volunteer Ministers at the London underground bombings, so knew their value. True to form a team of VMs remain to see that the emergency staff are well taken care of. In the words of L. Ron Hubbard, who formed the Scientology Volunteer Ministers: "A Volunteer Minister does not shut his eyes to the pain, evil and injustice of existence. Rather, he is trained to handle these things and help others achieve relief from them and new personal strength as well."
