I'm signing this petition as paramedics should have the same retirement age as fire fighters and garda.

They are equal to other civil servants if mot more. What they have to deal with is enormous.

This is a strenous and emotional job, 65yrs of age is not a reasonable or safe age to be still carrying out all the tasks involved.

I have seen the effects the work has on my cousin. The need to be treated fairly for the amazing work they do.

I recently had a conversation with a doctor actually a consultant and what he said to me was that the Hse expect you to be able to carry out your duties like that day when you first started with your job and continue working up until your retirement with the same performance like the new younger people coming into the job today and this he said is impossible,
People start to slow down whether they like it or not mentally and physically,
The Hse should be providing lighter duties and less hours for people who are getting older,
Frontline workers when they are in their fifties should be offered the opportunity to move to intermediate care vehicles/patient transport etc without having to take a cut in salary,
The younger people who are doing intermediate care work at the moment should be offered to go forward to paramedic level and do frontline if they desire,
As for myself I cannot imagine working frontline until 67 it would be a joke rocking up to a scene and being overweight sore and not being able to give the patient a 100% treatment,
That’s just my opinion on it.

Thanks for adding your voice.
