Firefighters

Firefighters is blazing its way back on to your screens for a highly anticipated second season of hard hitting stories from the front line of emergency response in Dublin, with dangerous missions, daring rescues and dramatic real-life stories. From blazing infernos and life-saving paramedic interventions to dramatic wildfires, river rescues and dangerous chemical spills, whenever and whatever the emergency, the firefighters are first on the scene, putting themselves in danger to save lives.

This season the dedicated men and women of Dublin Fire Brigade are back with the most dramatic stories yet, captured on camera as they unfold across Dublin City. Over the course of eight shows we also get an insight into the characters who wear the uniform and the passions that drive them; from a rural Canadian fire-fighter adjusting to the hectic pace of life in one of Europe's busiest fire stations and a weight-lifting female fire-fighter who's competes for medals when she's not saving lives, to the impact of the firefighters's work on the family of a woman brought back from the brink of death.
