Harty adds that 'smaller departments could form an alliance with each other so that they share officers, fire fighters and first aiders over shifts. This'll help to save on staff costs.'

Remember, you must have at least one HSE officer on duty during every shift.
Now that you know the number of HSE officers you're required to elect, make sure you comply.
