Dublin Fire Brigade launched its ‘Be Safe – Stay Safe’ campaign today, warning people not to put themselves in danger this Halloween.

As part of the launch, a group of schoolchildren got a look at how easily they could sustain very serious injuries by using fireworks or by getting close to a bonfire.

It’s hoped the campaign will get people to think about their actions and avoid serious injuries on 31 October.
