999 Faoi Oiliúint is a four-part series following the next generation of emergency workers. Whether it’s a firefighter, a paramedic, mountain rescue or coast guard, 999 Faoi Oiliúint will follow these new cadets as they undergo intense and gruelling training and find out if they have what it takes to make the grade.

The series features new cadets from Foyle Search and Rescue; Galway Fire Service; Mayo Mountain Rescue; Dublin Fire Service; National Ambulance Service Ireland; Lough Neagh Search and Rescue and the Irish Coast Guard.

Leanann 999 Faoi Oiliúint saol na ndaoine atá ag dul don obair thábhachtach a choinníonn muid slán muid in am a ghátar. Tá na foirne seo i mbun traenála, traenáil neamhghnách í seo a chuirfidh iad faoi bhrú fisiciúil agus intinne.

Twelve-hour shifts, on-the-spot decision-making, life-and-death scenarios and a diminished social life. Signing up for the emergency services is an all-embracing commitment. It’s a vocation. And it’s not for everyone.

Bíonn ar na daoine seo cinntithe deacra a thógáil go tapaidh agus iad faoi bhrú mór gach lá oibre agus trasnaíonn an saol oibre isteach sa saol pearsanta go minic.
