Dublin Fire Brigade members could be set to strike in the near future. 

SIPTU has announced that it will ballot Dublin Fire Brigade members for strike action over a failure to secure four additional ambulances that are needed to meet service demands in the city. 

According to SIPTU's Brendan O'Brien, "The management of Dublin Fire Brigade has advised Dublin City Council that it is prepared to put four additional ambulances on the streets immediately so that its Emergency Medical Service (EMS) can achieve HIQA targets."

"Senior management in Dublin City Council has stated that it is not in a position to provide the ambulances. This leaves the Dublin Fire Brigade EMS unable to provide the necessary ambulance service for the people of Dublin."
