Strandhill Community First Responders.
In an emergency always dial 112 / 999 and ask for AMBULANCE
Strandhill Community First Responders are volunteers with the goal of reducing the number of people who die from cardiac arrest in Ireland every year.
The Group cover the Coolera Peninsula an Area of 7Km radius around Strandhill and Coney Island.
Chain of Survival
- Early Access (to activate the emergency services)
- Early Basic Life Support (CPR Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation)
- Early Defibrillation (an electric shock to restart the heart)
- Early Advanced Care (paramedic intervention)
Strandhill Community First Responders are an integral and valued link in the Chain of Survival as they can provide essential treatments in those crucial first few minutes prior to the arrival of the National Ambulance Service.
It is important to note that no First Responder Scheme is not intended to replace emergency medical services provision, but rather to complement and enhance existing services, in line with the relevant national standards.
