A safe and happy Christmas wish from your local firemen
The staff at Tallaght and Dolphin’s Barn Fire stations would like to wish everyone a safe and Happy Christmas and a Peaceful New Year.
Every year 36 people die on average in fires in Ireland. This Christmas we have a few safety tips to keep safe.
- Smoke in bed
- Overload electrical sockets
- Leave the kitchen if a frying pan or deep fat fryer is being used
- Going out ? Lights out. Always unplug the extra Christmas lights
- Take care with candles, naked flames are a major source of ignition
- If you’re out socialising consider getting a take away on the way home. Drunk cooking is a significant cause of fire
- Get your chimney cleaned
- Buy batteries for toys….that way you wont’s be tempted to take them from your smoke alarms
- Electric blankets & hot water bottles don’t mix.
