Fire Safety Advice


The Fire Brigade provides Fire Safety advice and runs Fire Safety advice initiatives to highlight the dangers of fire and to provide any advice and help we can.

The 3 Golden Rules 

1. Escape Drill – plan and practice
2. Smoke Alarm – have two and test regularly
3. Survey your home and implement fire safety measures

Fire Prevention – general housekeeping

  • Give heat sources enough space for heat to dissipate    
  • Don’t overload electrical sockets    
  • Turn off all electrical appliances after use    
  • Avoid the build-up of papers and refuse     
  • Store combustibles appropriately - not along escape routes or under stairs
  • Maintain adequate means of escape    
  • Keep escape routes clear of all obstructions   

Fire Safety Calendar 2012:

Dublin Fire Brigade is delighted to present to you our 2012 Fire Safety Calendar  (pdf 3mb) based on a primary school art competition in the greater Dublin area. The aim was to encourage children to learn about fire safety and to increase fire safety awareness among families in Dublin City and County. There was an excellent response to the competition, 76 primary schools in total. Entries were of a very high standard and the winning pictures were judged by the Hugh Lane Gallery. This Calendar represents a selection of the artwork received.
