It follows, therefore, that on any view the appellant must be treated as having asked for the Upton fire brigade. The Upton fire brigade, on the other hand, was entitled to go to a fire outside its area and, if it did so, quite apart from its statutory rights, it could make a contract that it would be entitled to repayment of its expenses.
Published in the United States of America. The Upton fire brigade was informed, and it went in the form at once. The defendant did not know that if he sent for the Pershore fire brigade what advantage he would have obtained.
The contract was created because the service was performed and therefore there was an implied promise to pay. Parties create a contract by implied promise when one renders service that requires payment, even though the other may not be aware that the service requires payment.
That request having been made to the Upton fire brigade by a person who was asking for its services, does it, prevent there being a contractual relationship, merely because the Upton fire brigade, which responds to that request and renders the services, thinks, at the time it starts out and for a considerable time afterwards, that the farm in question is in its area, as the officer in charge appears to have thought?
The appellant lives at Strensham, and in Nov. Even apart from that, it seems to me quite sufficient if the Upton inspector reasonably so construed the request made to him, and, indeed, I do not see what other construction the inspector could have put upon that request.
In the circumstances of the present case, the judge was quite wrong in inferring that any contract had been entered into. The court reasoned that the fact that neither intended to enter into a contract was irrelevant.
Nature of the Risk: The time now is The appellant lives at Strensham, and in Nov. The county court judge said: It is in the Pershore fire district, and the appellant was entitled to have the services of the Pershore fire brigade without payment.
It appears that some 6 hours after the arrival of the Upton fire brigade, the officer of the Pershore brigade arrived on the scene, but without his brigade; he pointed ant to the Upton officer that it was a Pershore fire, and not an Upton fire, but the Upton fire brigade continued rendering services until the next day when the Pershore fire brigade arrived and took over.
I think he gave, the order for the fire brigade he wanted, and he got it. The fire brigade went intending to render a gratuitous service.
The country court judge then goes on to find that the inspector passed on the order and sent his fire brigade, and that was the fire brigade - I have no doubt, which the appellant expected. The Upton fire brigade, on the other hand, was entitled to go to a fire outside its area and, if it did so, quite apart from its statutory rights, it could make a contract that it would be entitled to repayment of its expenses.
It was only when it was discovered that the fire was in another area that it was decided that a charge should be made.
The county court judge held that the appellant when he rang up the police inspector, asked for the fire brigade to be sent. A fire broke out on the farm, and the appellant telephoned to the police inspector at Upton and asked for the fire brigade to be sent.

Was there a contract between the fire brigade and the farmer by implied promise of the farmer to pay if payment was required? All times are GMT It does not seem to me that there is any justification for attacking the finding of the judge on that basis.
Fire services have been the subject of some statutory enactment and a considerable body of regulations recently.Upton-on-Severn Rural District Council v. Powell () Facts: When Powell called the Upton Police Department to report that his barn was on fire, the Upton fire brigade was immediately sent out to extinguish the fire.
The Upton fire brigade showed up and began to put out the fire. While the fire was still burning, a neighboring fire chief came by and informed all that the farm was really in his district, and so the Upton fire brigade was not under obligation to put it out for free.
