Community first responders need funds to save lives

They cover an area from the Strand hotel to the Greenhills hotel and the surrounding residential estates.One of their volunteers, Noel Kerley, said that the main reason the group was set up was because they could see a need for it in the locality with an ageing population.“Cardiovascular disease is the most common cause of death in Ireland, accounting for 33 per cent of all deaths and early response is essential in helping to save some of those lives,” Mr Kerley added.Community First Responders are dispatched to cardiac arrests, adult chest pain (suspected heart attack), stroke and choking emergencies in their communities. Most responder groups have organised themselves to be “on call 24/7” to respond to these emergencies.“Because all of our ‘on call’ volunteers live locally, we generally arrive at the emergency call location before the paramedics and we carry out CPR and other life-saving measures until such time as the paramedics arrive,” Mr Kerley said.The normal time for an ambulance to arrive at the emergency address is 20 minutes, but it may take longer – depending on other emergency situations they are dealing with. This time delay may be life-threatening for some emergencies.While the Ennis Road CFR group is supported by the HSE and the National Ambulance Service, they do not get any funding to buy their own equipment, including AEDs (Automated External Defibrillators) or to provide accredited training and purchase training equipment.This is why they are running a major fundraising day on this Thursday, December 20 in Dunnes Stores at the Jetland Shopping Centre on the Ennis Road.“We are appealing to the people living in the area to support our fundraising next Thursday because we need this money to help us to buy this essential equipment and also to provide ongoing accredited training for our volunteers,” Mr Kerley explained.by Mary [email protected] Print Limerick on Covid watch list Twitter WhatsAppcenter_img TechPost | Episode 9 | Pay with Google, WAZE – the new Google Maps? and Speak don’t Type!

Cleveland Cavaliers trade Kyle Korver to Utah Jazz

first_img Written by FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailtaka4332/iStock/Thinkstock(CLEVELAND) — The Cleveland Cavaliers have traded veteran sharpshooter Kyle Korver to the Utah Jazz, ESPN reports, in what may be the beginning of a rebuild.Cleveland is expected to receive two second-round draft picks and guard Alec Burks in return for Korver. After losing LeBron James in free agency, the Cavaliers were not expected to be a playoff contender, but their early season struggles have prompted the front office to seek assets in exchange for some of their more veteran players. The team said earlier this month that it had mutually agreed with guard J.R. Smith to have him leave the team as it looked to deal him away.Utah, meanwhile, is just 9-12, and has struggled to shoot from three-point range this season. Korver, 37, has been sought after for his consistency in that area. Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
