Caroline Byrne - In Interview

The best aspect of my job is the immense job satisfaction and the feeling I get knowing that I am making a difference in my community.

Caroline Byrne

I am a firefighter based in the North Strand Fire Station. I have been a firefighter for the past eight years. My day to day working life varies greatly. Cardiac arrests, road traffic accidents, births, deaths and much more is all in a days work. There are plenty of opportunities to train and do courses in various different areas including swift water rescue, heavy driving, (ambulances and fire appliances) and operating specialist appliances e.g. turntable ladder. There are also opportunities to become an instructor in various areas such as Recruit training, Breathing apparatus instructor and Emergency medical technician Instructor. If asked about the best aspect of my job I would have to say it's the immense job satisfaction and the feeling I get knowing that I am making a difference in my community. I hope to develop my career with further training and hard work.
