Kildare County Council Arts Service

Fire service art competition 2004


Kildare County Council Fire Service is dedicated to the prevention of fire and taking appropriate speedy action when it does strike.

The Fire Service is one of the busiest in the country catering for a population of 170,000 people which is growing at a rate of 10% every five years.  The work of the Fire Service includes inspection of premises to which the public has resource (dance halls, cinemas, theatres etc.) with a view to ensuring that proper safety standards were in place.

There is an increased public awareness of the need to observe basic precautions such as keeping fire exits clear but, improvements in this area should not lead to a false sense of complacency, and the fire service maintains constant vigilance on behalf of the people of the County. 


As part of the public awareness campaign, the Fire Service, in association with the County Arts Service invited children and young people to participate in a calendar art competition on the theme ‘Fire Safety’.
