En­niskerry Car­diac First Re­spon­ders (En­niskerry CFR) was formed in 2014 specif­i­cally for as­sist­ing peo­ple liv­ing in the lo­cal­ity who suf­fer a car­diac emer­gency. The group is made up en­tirely from vol­un­teers who live or work in the En­niskerry or sur­round­ing ar­eas.

Our vol­un­teers have been trained to per­form CPR (Car­diopul­monary Re­sus­ci­ta­tion), how to use an AED and per­form Oxy­gen and As­pirin Ther­apy. Upon re­ceipt of a 999/112 call we are dis­patched si­mul­ta­ne­ously with the NAS (Na­tional Am­bu­lance Ser­vice) Emer­gency Am­bu­lance.

First Re­spon­ders are only dis­patched to Chest Pain, Breath­ing dif­fi­culty and Car­diac re­lated calls within a three mile (5km) ra­dius of their Com­mu­ni­ties. Be­cause the peo­ple ‘on call’ live or work in their area, they can re­spond in min­utes and pro­vide emer­gency mea­sures and re­as­sur­ance till the Am­bu­lance Ser­vice ar­rives.

Through fundrais­ing and gen­er­ous do­na­tions from mem­bers of the lo­cal com­mu­nity we have been able to pur­chase our own AEDs (Au­to­mated Ex­ter­nal De­fib­ril­la­tors) and train­ing equip­ment. Some have been mounted within the lo­cal­ity and are avail­able for use by the gen­eral pub­lic should the need arise.

En­niskerry CFR meet once a month to prac­tice and re­fresh our skills and train­ing. Ses­sions are fun, en­joy­able and also pro­vide op­por­tu­ni­ties to meet like­minded peo­ple and make new friends. We meet for com­mu­nity train­ing on the third Thurs­day of ev­ery month in Pow­er­scourt Na­tional School from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. Th­ese hour long ses­sions pro­vide op­por­tu­ni­ties for mem­bers of the com­mu­nity to meet some of the First Re­spon­ders and re­ceive an in­tro­duc­tion to CPR and use of an AED.

Train­ing is free. We are al­ways look­ing for new mem­bers in the En­niskerry area. You don’t even have to know first aid. We do all of your train­ing. The only thing we do ask for is your time to be on call. You can de­cide that and we take it from there.

If you are in­ter­ested in join­ing us or at­tend­ing one of our com­mu­nity train­ing ses­sions, you can con­tact us by any of the fol­low­ing: Email en­nisker­rycfr@gmail. com; face­book.com/En­niskerry Car­daic First Re­spon­ders or call Pat Carey (Co­or­di­na­tor) at 086 2564468. 086 3064704, Tom Quigley 086 2106470 or Paul Kelly 086 6014844.
