Firefighters in Dublin warned it might deter people from dialling 999 and endanger lives of civilians and firefighters. The charges include a first-hour fee of €610 for vehicle and chimney fires and a first-hour fee of €500 for domestic fires.

A charge of €610 will also be applied for the first hour a fire brigade attends a traffic crash.

The council said all hours after the first would be charged per tender attending.
