Dublin Fire Brigade reminds us of important emergency contacts this Christmas

As the number of accidents soar every year, Dublin Fire Brigade has released a post reminding people of the numbers to call if an accident occurs.

Every year, Dublin Fire Brigade releases staggering figures on the number of emergency calls it responds to.

Christmas is a time when house fires are at an all-time high and the emergency services do their best to make sure you have a safe and pleasant festive season.

As part of the protocol in doing so, they've released the two important numbers with the hope that you do not need them this festive period.

Both 999 or 112 work throughout Ireland and will put you through to the first responders for all emergency situations.

Other numbers to remember at this time of year include your nearest hospital and the number of An Garda Síochána's confidential line which is 1800 666 111. 

Dublin Fire Brigade also wants to remind people to go out and buy extra batteries and under no circumstance take batteries out of smoke alarms.

Remember to take precautions and make sure all candles and electrical appliances are off before leaving the house to ensure a fantastic and happy Christmas.
