Do you have a car or vehicle coming to the end of its life? Dublin Fire Brigade (DFB) are seeking old cars for its training centre.

DFB say they need scrap – or old – vehicles to help in training their firefighters and paramedics, and to maintain the highest standards of Road Traffic Collision training.

Any car that is donated will be used for on-going training, and to help the Fire Brigade to train new recruits as well.

In a statement on its External Training website seeking the vehicles, DFB said: “Vehicle design is constantly changing, and new technologies are being introduced by manufactures.

“Firefighters and officers need to train regularly to keep their skills up to date with these new developments in how to safely and efficiently extricate casualties from crashed vehicles.”

For further details, contact the DFB Training Centre by calling 01 222 4199 from Monday to Friday, between 9am and 5pm.
