ith the Greystones Community First Responders proving a vital part of the town, great to see Newcastle now have their very own.
First pitched by Joshua Dargan Hayes in June of 2020, the Newcastle Community First Responders are now up and running.
And chairman Joshua is joined by treasurer Aisling Barrett and secretary Irene Jennings in putting the shout-out for new members.
Here’s the lowdown…
The Newcastle CFR Committee were delighted to launch our first Public Accessible Defibrillator and a new recruitment drive recently to encourage people residing in a 5km radius of Newcastle to join our group which was founded last year and aims to be operational and responding to 999 calls locally soon.
We would love to hear from all those in the community who want to give back and learn some life saving skills. Even if residents aren’t comfortable responding to emergencies there are plenty of roles available on the administration & finance side of the group in addition to training members of the public in correct CPR & AED usage and maintenance of the area’s defibrillators for example.
A public information night is being held online mid-August for all those who’ve expressed an interest so they can find out more about us and ask any questions they may have.
If you feel being a First Responder is a good fit, you can register your interest right about here.
