National Fire Safety Week, 4 October – 11 October 2021, aims to enhance fire safety, particularly in the home.
This year the main theme is:
“Working Smoke Alarms Save Lives – Test Yours Weekly” or “Sábhálann aláraim deataigh atá ag obair i gceart saolta – déan tástáil orthu go rialta”.
In the time of Covid-19, as we spend more time at home it is more important than ever that we are all aware and
fully-informed as to the steps we can take to protect ourselves and our homes from fire. This year for Fire Safety
Week we will be focusing particularly on fire safety in the home and encouraging all homes to have smoke
alarms and test them weekly. As we move towards a ‘new normal’, we hope to help the public build new Fire Safe
habits to bring with them as routines return to some normality.
