Dear Grogan, Ruth,

In addition to this enquiry,

Is it true that:

- If a firefighter is on operational emergency duties and is changing the rear of the appliance, it is not appropriate for them to be filmed.

- Unauthorised filming isn’t appropriate during an emergency situation, even if standing in a public place.

- You need to make a formal request to film or take photographs in a public place of NIFRS.

- You need to request permission through the NIFRS Corporate Communications Department to take pictures of firefighters in public.

Sorry for dropping this on you so suddenly but I was recently told some of this information but I want to know if it's true or not.

Yours sincerely,

Aodhán R
