Red4ready - Fire Safety Week
Dublin Fire Brigade are delighted that over 90 businesses and buildings around Dublin City and County will be going red to support the Fire Safety Week #Red4ready campaign.
Fire Safety Week 2021, which runs from the 4th to the 10th of October, will focus on upholding the principles of fire safety and informing citizens about the best practices to stay safe from fire in their home.
We really appreciate the support of these businesses and buildings for their support in helping raise awareness of fire dangers. 2021 is the second year of the lighting up red initiative.
To compliment the red buildings we’ve collaborated with Dublin brand design company Kollektiv to build a cross platform campaign to build awareness, engage, inform and ultimately influence behaviour around fire safety. The #Red4ready visual campaign centres the most important fire safety messages created from smoke. The campaign has been produced as static and animated images and will appear on digi-panels, cinema screens, billboards, bus shelters, in traditional media, and on social media.
Help us influence attitudes and prevent destructive fires by downloading and printing the six messages for display in your place of work, schools, shops or community centres.
