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.
