Representatives from Dublin Fire Brigade have called for a meeting with the Minister Housing Eoghan Murphy following the recent events at the Metro Hotel in Ballymun.
The call for the meeting comes after a large scale fire broke out at the top of the high rise building on Wednesday evening.
In an announcement following the fire SIPTU and Forsa members have called to meet Mr Murphy in order to discuss enacting the apropiate measures when it comes to dealing with such fires.
Speaking in the aftermath of the fire a SIPTU representative said a meeting must be held as current fire safety regulations for high rise buildings set out by the government are outdated and deeply flawed.
The representative added the current fire safety standards must be reviewed sooner rather than later as the proper resources and training will deal the possible dangers impossed by fires in high rise buildings.
Although there were no major casualties the fire was an inevitablity given the change of the change of Dublin’s landscape over the past 30 years, but the current regulations does not account for high rise buildings in certain locations as they are relatively new, the representative added.
