Roscommon Rapid Response meeting in Boyle

Roscommon Rapid Response will hold a public meeting in Boyle on Tuesday November 1st

The meeting is one of a series of public meetings throughout the county to inform community members and defibrillator groups about the Community Emergency Response System. They will also provide groups with a map of their defibrillator locations which will enable them to identify black spots and a draft outline of a proposal for Grant Aid.

The Community Response System enables a 4/5 minute medical response (quality CPR & Defibrillation) for Cardiac Arrest victims in your community. This 4/5 minute response time has been proven by medical research to achieve up to 75% survival rate for cardiac arrest victims. The current survival rate in Ireland is 5%.

The group say they can save lives in every community throughout Co. Roscommon with a very simple community emergency response system. Download the EmCall App to your phone for free.
