Lord Mayor of Dublin Niall Ring and Acting Chief Fire Officer Dennis Keeley were in the Mansion House to present prizes to the 12 Dublin students for their winning pictures which are featured on the calendar.

As part of fire safety week, DFB invited all the primary school children in the Dublin region to participate in the art competition with the aim of increasing fire safety awareness among young people.

DFB used the occasion to remind the public to be safe at Christmas by ensuring chimneys are cleaned regularly, working smoke alarms with batteries, always unplug Christmas lights before going to bed, keep matches and lighters out of children’s reach, and have an escape plan for you and family in case of emergency.
