atest press release from Cllr Stephen Stokes, issued on Sunday, June 26th.
Cllr. Stephen Stokes has praised the Greystones Water Safety Awareness Day that took place on Sunday, June 26th.
Cllr. Stokes stated: “It was a very positive day, with a strong turnout from the local community. But it could not have happened without the great work from our local organisations, who already work so hard to protect lives”.
The venue for the day was the Marina Plaza. Cllr. Stephen Stokes added: “The interactive aspect was great. Local people could engage with many organisations, and get practical advice or demonstrations. I would like to express special thanks to Keith O’Brien, from Greystones Community First Responders who taught me basic CPR techniques. I now feel a lot more confident in an emergency situation”.
The organisations taking part had a mix of professionals and volunteers. Those taking part included An Garda Síochána, Civil Defence, Greystones Coast Guard Unit, Greystones Fire Service, Poseidon Life Saving Club and the RNLI.
Cllr. Stokes further added: “I’d also like to say a big thank you to An Garda Síochána for their coordination efforts. Many of their staff volunteered to attend on their day off. That shows a real commitment to the community. Speaking to Greystones Community First Responders was fascinating. They are busier than ever, especially as the Greystones area continues to grow. Hopefully events like today will also spark fresh interest in generating new volunteers.
“The Water Safety Day was an all round success for the community.”
