Clontarf Community - Public Defibrillators

Donation protected
What? This Christmas we want to get the "fix for six" and have 6  public defibrillators mounted on walls spread through out the Clontarf area so a defib is never too far away if needed for someone suffering a cardiac arrest.  We have one down with 5 to go! ... Dec 11th update 2 down... 4 to go... :-) Who? Clontarf Community First Responders (CFR) are a new group of volunteers from the area that are alerted to medical emergencies by the National Ambulance Service for the Clontarf Area. They respond and provide basic patient care until the arrival of Paramedics to people who have suffered Cardiac Arrests, Chest Pain or Stroke. The Group are one of 10 around Dublin and 250 nationwide. The responders are made up of residents from the area from all different backgrounds trained to provide basic life support in  a voluntary capacity. In the case of a cardiac arrest every minute that passes reduces the chance of survival by 7 to 10%. As the volunteers all live in the area they can get quickly to someone who needs help hopefully making a difference. We are delighted and honoured to have GAA All Star and Clontarf local Jack McCaffrey as our ambassador. Each Defib costs 2,000 which is where we need your help big or small.
