That's a MSc program, minimum requirements would be a diploma if not a degree

There's plenty of people who have done it without a previous 3rd level qualification. However, they would all have extensive work experience in a relevant area such as Emergency Services. Qualification for entry is judged individually for each applicant.

Entry Requirements:
Applicants should hold an honours primary degree or an equivalent professional qualification. A small number of students who do not meet the normal entry criteria may be considered for admission to the programme on the basis of their work experience and other relevant educational achievements.
Selection of applicants may include an interview.

And also from the DCU page
The DCU M.Sc. in Emergency Management is the first programme of its kind in Ireland. It has been endorsed by the National Directorate for Fire and Emergency Management, The Emergency Planning Society (Republic of Ireland Branch) and Pharmachemical Ireland as being suitable for improving the emergency management skills of individuals in both the public and private sectors.
Would envisgae people in the industry that supports it would have greater flexibility to get in, only in the recent past has the EMS side of Ireland gone towards 3rd level qualifications and the AGS have followed suit as recently listed here.

It would be better to do a level 8 degree first, you would have more options open to you once you're finished.
Eventhough that masters is at level 9, it still does not substitute for a honours degree, especially for job applications. 

Best of luck with your studies 19

Just to be aware though, H&S has to be one of the most godawful sorts of shite to be stuck doing every day for a living . It sounds about a million times better than the reality.

No it doesn't. It sounds shite fullstop 16

Spend your days deciding where to stick pointless signs and painting bullshit yellow lines on random pieces of ground. You soon discover that you are the most ignored and laughed at person in the workplace.
