To be sure your building is fire safe, ask if the following features are working and maintained:
Fire detection and alarm system
Escape routes clear
Ironmongery on escape doors (not locked)
Compartmentation of walls and floors
Portable fire extinguishers
Automatic opening vents in stairs
Not every building will have all these features.
If you need advice or are concerned with the fire safety features of your building such as fire doors, fire detection alarm systems, emergency lighting, escape routes etc you can contact Dublin Fire Brigade Fire prevention duty officer call (01) 222 4066.
