Dublin Fire Brigade Ambulance under Threat
Dublin Fire Brigade (DFB) have been providing an Ambulance service to the citizens of the city and county since 1898. All Firefighters in the DFB are also paramedics and they rotate between fire and ambulance duties. This dual role, fire based emergency medical service is internationally recognised as best practice. It is replicated in cities such as Seattle, New York, Dusseldorf , Frankfort etc. If a person in Dublin suffers a cardiac arrest ( heart and breathing stops ), an ambulance and fire appliance is dispatched. This ensures a top level of pre-hospital care with up to 8 paramedics on scene. The Dublin city manager Mr. Owen Keegan has announced
