What does a Firefighter do?


Hello and welcome to the Just the Job Podcast – a podcast about the jobs other people do.

In what is being billed as a clash between two of the most macho jobs any man could have, this episode me, a maths teacher, spoke to Marty Royal, an operational firefighter with Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service. We spoke about how it feels to save a life, dealing with tragedies, the technology involved, how the job has been affected by austerity cuts, the reaction of the public, and what happens on a firefigher interview.

You can listen to all other episodes by visiting justthejobpodcast.com.  There, you’ll also find the  bank of questions I ask my guests, so you can play along at home, as well as links to my various maths & non maths projects. If you want to get in contact, then on Twitter I am @mrbartonmaths. Finally, all the lovely music throughout the episode is written and performed by Monk Turner.

I hope you enjoy the show!
