hose clever people at both Greystones and Bray Fire Station have pulled together to deliver 12 new defibrillators.
And top of their list for these life-saving devices is along The Cliff Walk.
Access to such devices can, of course, make all the difference between life and death, and with The Cliff Walk pretty much a no-go (or, at the very least, a go-slow) area for the emergency services, having defibrillators spaced out along one of the country’s most popular walks makes perfect sense.
In town today to launch the new defibrillator was Minister For Health Stephen Donnelly, who visited Carraig Eden for their unveiling.
It was upon recognising the importance of defibrillators when it came to saving lives that the Bray and Greystones firefighters turned to local businesses to raise the necessary funds.
Greystones Fire Brigade will maintain the equipment and plan to issue a map showing the location of each machine.
Minister Donnelly said: “I would like to commend both the Bray and Greystones Fire Brigade for the extraordinary work they have done in raising the funds for these new defibrillators. They have seen first hand how defibrillators can make the difference between life and death.
“The rolling out of these new defibrillators is a fantastic initiative and will undoubtedly help to save lives.”
