At the moment there are different types of firefighters, you have full-time and part-time or retained.
Retained do their normal job and carry a pager/alerter. When it goes off they have to turn out within four minutes.
Can't afford to move
Full-time firefighters are on station all the time.
Both my uncles are full-time firefighters and are wanting to move out but can't afford to rent or buy a place of their own.
My step dad is a retained firefighter for Sudbury.
I respect the fact that the firefighters are going on strike - they deserve more than the income they are getting.
Having a firefighter at home is hard because if you have arrangements and the alerter goes off you have to go no matter what.
They are trained to use so many different pieces of equipment such as the cutting equipment they use to rescue people out of car crashes.
This will be a big concern when they strike as the Green Goddesses will not have this equipment to rescue people in the way firefighters do.
These Green Goddesses are very slow and they do not carry any of the specialised equipment that the firefighters are trained to use."
