3 Mission Mission As Dublin Fire Brigade approaches 150 years in service to the citizens of Dublin providing safety and protection to all, we now intend to use the model of the Green Plan to become leaders of sustainable energy, to maximise our low carbon future and to empower people to effect change in our Fire Brigade and the local community itself.

4 History Green Plan Kilbarrack Fire Station to become Carbon Neutral Kilbarrack Fire Station to become Carbon Neutral Pilot project for Dublin Fire Brigade Pilot project for Dublin Fire Brigade Lead by example and create a template for others to follow Lead by example and create a template for others to follow Reduce Energy and Water consumption Reduce Energy and Water consumption Prevent and reduce the volume of domestic waste and carbon emissions Prevent and reduce the volume of domestic waste and carbon emissions

14 Society Society In the local community Dublin Fire Brigades interaction has predominately been responding to emergencies and promoting fire safety awareness.

15 Procurement Procurement Emergency Ambulance equipment had previously been delivered to the Brigade excessively packaged. Emergency Ambulance equipment had previously been delivered to the Brigade excessively packaged. Station groceries were purchased adding to food mile production.

16 Some results Total estimated cost Estimated saving per annum CO2 estimated annual reduction Payback period 163,21548, tonnes3.3 years Overall Total Green Plan cost to people visited Kilbarrack Fire Station during Innovation Dublin Festival

17 Some results 80% of the Stations hot water is produced daily by the thermodynamic panels The new boilers are 98% efficient Removing the Space Heaters has made savings of one Tonne of CO 2 and over 1,200 per annum Electricity consumption has been reduced by 80% per annum The Station is permanently at one temperature, reducing boiler work load and creating a better healthier working environment for the staff.

18 Some results Electrical Appliances have a reduced output of over 50% By retro fitting new technologies, the water consumption of the Station has been reduced by 1,500,000 litres per annum. The cost of water to and from the station has dropped by 90% Seven Public Private Partnerships have been set up to create the recycle bay. The stations retro fit has prevented 10 Tonne of CO2 from leaking out through the fabric and is directly impacting on the running costs of the station.

19 Some results 100% of the glass, paper, plastic, and tin produced on site are recycled 40% of all station waste is now recycled. We are now composting 100% of all organic waste created in the station. There is a comprehensive Biodiversity Action Plan written for Kilbarrack Fire Station There are two working Beehives in Kilbarrack Fire Station

20 Some results U ValuesRetro-fit Before Phase (I) work, most of the Fire Station had a U value higher then ten. This equates to 1,834.7 KwHr of energy wasted through the building fabric poor insulation. The Station consumed 210 litres of oil per day. After Phase (II) work, almost all the Fire Station has a U value of under.9, this equates to a KwHr of energy still wasted through the building fabric.

21 Some results U ValuesRetro-fit The 1, KwHr saved represents a total energy saving of 170 litres of oil per day and an energy saving of 70.2% Phase (III) work is currently under way to reduce heat loss by a further 26.3% The Station Office roof insulation project will bring the U value from 878 KwHr to KwHr a total saving of 96.5%. This figure will effect the entire Station U Value figures.

22 Behavioural Change The implementation of the Green Plan would not have been possible without the dedication and commitment of both the current and retired staff in Kilbarrack Fire Station. Behavioural change has no upfront cost and the stations staff are part of the solution. Behavioural change is free and is the fundamental unit driving the success of the Green Plan. Fire fighters and officers alike bought into the idea of a shared responsibility for their Fire Station. This is reflected in each theme mentioned above. In Kilbarrack Fire Station, staff have adopted a can do attitude with regard to this project. The staff are stakeholders and an intrinsic part of the Green Plan.
