Kinsale Community First Responders
Posted by Kinsale Advertiser on 21 February 2017

A new inter agency led Community First Response (CFR) initiative is in the process of being established in Kinsale.
The new volunteer First Response unit has committed support from local emergency services such as An Garda Siochána, Civil Defence, Fire Brigade, RNLI, Coast Guard and the Irish Red Cross. The groups aim is to provide emergency first response care to people living in the community who suffer cardiac arrest, choking, cardiac chest pain or stroke.
On Thursday 23rd February 2017 at 19:30 in Actons Hotel, Pier Road, Kinsale, a public meeting will be held to advance the initiative and to inform the community on the time-critical work that the volunteer First Response team will be carrying out when requested.
All welcome to come along and attend on the night.
