2400 liters per second is 2.4 m^3/s (cubic meters per second) or 84,76 ft³/s or 634,01 gallons_per_second_us_liquid

You're Fired

Can you go into how it works with relation to working as a part time fire-fighter. How often were you called out ? Are there laws obliging companies to give you the time off ? What happens if you get injured - who pays the unemployment benefit (WW uitkering) ? Can you get fired from your main job ? How much do you make as a volunteer fire-fighter ? Can you explain the role of the Junior Fire-fighting teams ?
