Careers rarely develop the way we plan them. Our career path often takes many twists and turns, with particular events, choices and people influencing our direction.

We asked Declan Rice from Local Government Management Services Board to give some advice for people considering this job:

Research it well. Visit you local fire station, talk to the firefighters and question them ... they are generally very willing to help interested persons.

The training is excellent and will prepare you well for what will be expected of you. To "fit-in" you have got to be a team player, there's really no room for those who aren't. Who wants to work along someone for 25-30 years who only thinks of themself ? Your life may someday depend on them.

Do not consider this job if you are afraid of heights or confined spaces or squemish, in this job people will literally die in your arms; it's something you must give thought to. Having said all that ... the job is very safisfying
