This autumn, an exciting new series takes viewers behind the scenes and into the heart of the action with the men and women of Dublin Fire and Rescue.

Across the eight episodes, viewers will see the work of Dublin Fire and Rescue first-hand as they fight raging fires, perform life-saving medical procedures, and respond to whatever emergency the city throws at them – from river rescues and road traffic accidents to battling blazes and rescuing people from burning buildings.

This action-packed series captures all of the drama from across the city, focusing not just on any one fire station, but on the entire city-wide fire brigade, moving from station to station as the action unfolds to bring viewers all of the most dramatic, real-life stories from Ireland's capital city as they happen.

Dublin Fire and Rescue receive around 133,000 calls a year. Whenever and whatever the emergency, the firefighters are first on the scene, putting themselves in danger to save lives. And it's not just fighting fires. Every member of the Dublin Fire brigade is a trained paramedic, and between fighting fires, ambulance services, rapid river rescues, marine emergency response and high line rescue, the emergencies they respond to are very different, each day.

These are real stories, about real people in real emergency situations. Every episode will take viewers a little deeper into the work of the firefighters, and give an insight into the kind of training, courage, professionalism and humour that allow them to face life and death situations, day after day.
