Dublin Fire Brigade is receiving a 999 call every 40 seconds

The message is to use common sense.

HALLOWEEN IS ALWAYS an extremely busy night for Dublin Fire Brigade.

However, today has already proven busy for Dublin’s firefighters.

Six units were needed to tackle this blaze at an apartment in Knocklyon earlier:

There were no casualties reported from the fire.

Around the county, bonfires have been tackled and a fire on Ossory Road in East Wall is affecting the speed at which Irish Rail services can travel.

Dublin Fire Brigade is asking people to remain safe tonight, with Dublin City Council putting on a number of events.

Pat Flemming, the Chief Fire Officer with Dublin Fire Brigade says:

“Halloween night is one of the busiest nights of the year for Dublin Fire Brigade. I would advise people to exercise common sense. Adults in particular are requested to keep a watchful eye on the very young, the very old, and the vulnerable members of our society.”

People are advised to keep pets indoors and respect emergency services as they do their jobs.
