Dublin Fire Brigade has announced over 100 businesses and buildings around the city and county are going red this week to support the Fire Safety Week #Red4ready campaign.
Fire Safety Week 2021, which runs from the 4th to the 11th 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.
The annual awareness week is being marked by the transformation of some of Dublin city’s most famous landmarks, as they turn red in recognition of the week and its important message.
For the duration of Fire Safety Week, the Mansion House, Hugh Lane Gallery, Samuel Beckett Bridge, and more, will all go red.

DFB Chief Fire Officer, Dennis Keeley says: "Dublin Fire Brigade fully supports NDFEM Fire Safety Week. We urge people to keep themselves safe from fire, be aware of the hazards, have a working smoke alarm in your home and a plan for your escape."
The theme for Fire Safety Week 2021 is 'Working Smoke Alarms Save Lives – Test Yours Weekly'.
In addition to the building illuminations, an awareness campaign will be showcased on digipanels, cinemas, billboards, bus shelters, in traditional media, and on social media.
