RTE Firefighters Show



This September on RTÉ One an exciting new series will take you right into the heart of the action with the brave men and women of Dublin Fire and Rescue.

Dublin Fire Brigade and ambulance services receive around 133,000 calls a year. Whatever the emergency, whenever it happens, the firefighters are first to respond, putting themselves in danger to save lives. And it's not just fighting fires. Every member of Dublin Fire and Rescue is a trained paramedic, and whether it's ambulance services, rapid river rescues, marine emergency response or high line rescues that are called for, they're equipped and trained to give people in need of rescue the best chance of survival.

Using state of the art technology including vehicle and helmet mounted cameras this series will bring viewers deep into the heart of the fire scene with the firefighters themselves to witness and experience a level of danger, drama and emotion never before seen on Irish television.
