Minister Ring Praises Community Volunteers For Saving Lives

Mayo ICRR featured in an article in The Mayo News on 16 January 2018.

Minister Michael Ring (Rural & Community Development) thanked all the organisations in the locality who provide emergency care on a voluntary basis on behalf of the State.

Reporter Anton McNulty interviewed our volunteer doctor about the donation of the new vehicle (Kadjar, pictured) from Renault Ireland.  We have also received new equipment thanks to the Clár grant.  The new defibrillator / monitor (Lifepak 15) and automatic CPR device (LUCAS 2) are introduced into service this week.

ICRR and UCD CEMS were also on hand to deliver emergency equipment to local GPs as part of the MERIT 3 project.  We got a chance to meet JJ Burke Car Sales, our local Renault dealership who will be looking after out vehicle.
