Firefighters dashed to a town centre high street this afternoon to repair a shop sign.
The crew drove 500m with blue lights flashing from their station to health food company Holland & Barrett after shoppers reported the green fascia was hanging off the wall.
Firefighters used a stepladder and screwdriver to re-attach the sign before driving off.
A spokesman for Kent Fire and Rescue said: "Crews were called to make a shop sign safe which was overhanging a public footpath.
"Where there is a risk to the public we do attend this sort of call."
The alarm was raised just before 4pm.The fire crew spent nine minutes making the sign safe.
