Firefighters are protesting around Dublin today, against what they say is an attempt to break up their emergency services.
They're demonstrating at 12 different stations.
SIPTU, the union representing members, opposes a Dublin City Council plan to take away their 'call and dispatch' ambulance service.
Dublin City Council Management plans to separate the ambulance and call centre service and merge it with the HSE’s National Ambulance Service.
SIPTU's Brendan O'Brien said that strike action was not being ruled out: "We have balloted our members on strike action," he said, "the removal of any components of our integrated response service would delay responses to call outs to the pubic and it is absolutely imperative we do not allow this to happen."
Supporters of Dublin Fire Brigade are calling on the people of the city and county to meet at their local fire station tomorrow at 1pm – to voice their opposition to the proposal.
