The role of a firefighter
Firefighters are responsible for providing fire safety information to the public and encouraging them to take the steps to prevent fires and death or injury by fire by giving advice about fire prevention, evacuation and how to restrict the spread of fire in buildings and other properties. This can also include: extinguishing fires and protecting lives and property; rescuing people involved in road traffic collisions and protecting people from serious harm; and when necessary, responding to other emergencies needing FRSs assistance (The National Archives, 2017). As it can be seen, firefighters not only fight fires. They respond to many other emergencies as well as are active in prevention work.
