The public has a chance to meet emergency services staff and volunteers from all over the country today.
1500 frontline personnel are marching through Dublin this lunchtime to celebrate the 'National Services Day Parade'.
Tony Lawlor, National Director of Units with the Irish Red Cross, says its a chance to show gratitude to the people who help us in those hours of greatest need.
The highlight of the day is a parade which will leave Parnell Square in Dublin city centre and make its way down O’Connell Street and over O’Connell Bridge.
It will then go onto Westmoreland Street before going up Dame Street and into Dublin Castle.
Legendary GAA commentator Michaéal Ó Muircheartaigh will be Grand Marshall.
Each of the services will display their specialist equipment and formation drills for the general public on the day of the parade at Dublin Castle.
