Donate a Vehicle

Are you the registered owner of a car or vehicle that is at the end of its life? Why not donate it to Dublin Fire Brigade for training its personnel?

We require scrap, or end-of-life, vehicles to help us maintain the highest standards of Road Traffic Collision (RTC) training for our Firefighters/Paramedics.

Vehicle design is constantly changing and new technologies are being introduced by manufacturers. Firefighters and officers need to train regularly to keep their skills up to date with these new developments in how to safely and efficiently extricate casualties from crashed vehicles.

The will be used to train new recruits in our training centre, or to upskill current operational firefighters on-station.

We will consider all types of vehicles, not just cars. So if you have a van, HGV or bus that you want to donate, please do get in touch with us.

We will arrange for a contractor to collect your vehicle in the greater Dublin area and to issue an end-of-life certificate. You must have the vehicle's Vehicle Licence Certificate (VLC) or logbook. 

Approximately 50 vehicles are made to our training centre each year. It takes up to 25 cars to train 10 recruit Firefighters on a two week Road Traffic Collision Operators course.

If you would like to donate your vehicle, telephone 01 222 4199, email [email protected]
