“Where the Road Takes Me” on C103 from 7 This Evening

We thank Presenter John Greene for this advance information regarding this evening’s programme on C103:

Defining the job description of a fire fighter nowadays requires a little more thought. From primarily fighting and extinguishing fires, their role in protecting the public in emergency situations has expanded greatly. Road traffic collisions, chemical spills, flooding and general rescues are all in a day’s work for your local fire service.

In this week’s edition of Where the road takes me, and in the first of a two part programme, John Greene pays a visit to Bandon Fire Station to meet past and present crew members.

We meet Eleanor Tobin, Bandon’s only female fire fighter.

The crew recall their involvement with Bandon’s worst flooding in 2009.
