Product Description

Firecall is filled with stories of men and women who have chosen a career that often puts them into contact with some of the most distressing aspects of society. Daily, they deal with death, danger and tragedy. They are in the front line in humanity’s perpetual battle against nature’s most volatile, deadly and unpredictable element.

Firecall follows the fire tenders to the fires, the false alarms, the medical emergencies. It explains how the service works, what it means to be a firefighter, how firefighting is passed down through the generations and how tragedy inevitably strikes this close community. Most of all, it follows the dangers, the heartbreak and the bravery of the men and women who form the Irish Fire Service.
