Fire brigade - Fireman - Duties - Co-responding duties - Whether firefighters contractually bound to perform co-responding duties.
On its true construction, the employee firefighters' contracts did not require them to undertake what were known as co-responding duties; those being activities which related to situations where an emergency call was received by the ambulance service where there was a life-threatening situation, and it appeared that a fire crew could reach the scene before an ambulance crew. In such circumstances in applicable areas the fire and rescue services might be called upon to attend the scene until an ambulance could arrive and to provide what assistance and treatment they could.
