Dublin Fire Brigade had an exceptionally hectic weekend, and while we all know that working in the emergency services can be tough, we often underestimate just how many call outs the ambulance and fire teams do.
If you ever wondered just how busy it can get, the latest tweet from Dublin Fire Brigade will be a bit of an eye-opener...
The team has revealed that it dealt with 585 emeregency 999/112 calls over the weekend.
That's an insane TWELVE calls an hour.
