Its that time of year again, when we are getting ready for Christmas, family and Santa. Sadly not everyone will be looking forward with anticipation, instead simple hoping for food, warmth or a small present. Thankfully there are goups like 'Little Blue Heroes' and 'Barnados' out there. Both help the youngest and most vulnerable in society and this Christmas we ask that you join us in making a donation at https://www.littleblueheroes.org/donate/ or https://www.barnardos.ie/christmas

I don't know what ye're giving out about.
I know a lad not too far away from me that was a retained station officer in the fire brigade, a seargent in the FCA, was in one of the vol ambulance services, a county councillor, a justice of the peace and an undertaker.
He also managed to squeeze in being on the parish council and a Eucharistic minister and was also apparently an excellent water diviner.

Personally I like nothing more than seeing the end of the shift and leaving work. 

CFR, part-time Police Officer and is he full-time FS? Surely he can't be if he's a "Tri Service Safety Officer"………Jesus wept…..
It's not the HSE's opinion, it's not managements opinion, it's mine. All mine.

What a load of bollox.
He who fights with monsters should look to it that he himself does not become a monster.

There are two paramedics as far as I know still retained with FB. Not sure what the story is. But it's definitely the exception. .... lots of ex FF in Cork had to leave the FB a few years ago.

You notice how he couldn't make it as a real cop or paramedic...........

Just an observation
Often the sheep do not like the sheepdog,  until the wolf comes.  Then the sheep try to hide behind the sheepdog, begging for his protection.

Looks like it might be the way to go for someone involved in an overcrowded SAR market.
