Fire Services Activities- What do we do?
The main duties of the Fire Service are to help protect the public in emergency situations. Firefighters respond to a wide variety of calls, such as car crashes, chemical spills, flooding, water rescue and general rescue as well as fires. With many fire crews being trained as first responders they can provide first aid until the arrival of ambulance personnel.
There are two main divisions of firefighter: full-time firefighters and retained firefighters.
The Fire Service is also tasked with Fire Prevention. The main duties of a Fire Prevention Officer are to survey buildings under construction and existing buildings to ensure fire safety regulations are adhered to. Community Fire Safety is also under the remit of the Fire Service amongst other services.
Careers in the Irish Fire & Rescue Service fall into 2 categories:
1) Fire Fighter
2) Senior Fire Officer
