National Fire Safety Week is from October 5th to October 12th. Durrow Fire and Rescue Service are doing a number of exercises to make everyone more conscious of fire safety in the home, at work, in the play area, etc… With this in mind the fire service are doing a demonstration on the large green in The Square, Durrow on Friday October 9th at 2.15pm in the afternoon to coincide with the children leaving school. The demonstration will include all aspects of fire safety, CPR and the AED and much much more. This event is open to children from the school and their parents as well as anyone who wishes to see this wonderful demonstration. Fire personnel will be available to answer questions as well give fire safety advice.

The Brigade also hopes to hold an adult night where they will demonstrate how to do CPR and how to use the AED. The date for this is not set yet but check this space next week for all the details. In recent months the need for the use of CPR and AED meant that lives were saved by the quick intervention of CPR and the Fire Service with the AED in the Durrow area.
