Extreme Fire Risk Weather Notice

Kildare County Council's Severe Weather Assessment Team (SWAT) met today Wednesday, 11 July, to review the current weather conditions and to monitor the impact across council services and the wider community.  Met Eireann is forecasting that the warm weather is set to continue this week.

The Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine issued a "Condition RED- Extreme Fire Risk" notice for Forest Fires and Kildare Fire Service is prepared to respond should it be necessary. The community is again urged that all outdoor use of fires, barbeques and other open ignition sources be avoided in forest lands and in other high risk area until further notice.

All council services are being delivered as normal and the SWAT team will continue to monitor the impact of the continuing hot weather.

Irish Water has cautioned about the volumes of water that are being used in the Dublin Region, of which Kildare is a part. Advice on how to conserve water is available on the "Be Water Smart" section of the Irish Water website www.water.ie
