The Glin branch of the Red Cross are actively seeking new members as well as encouraging existing members to consider re-training in CFR (Cardiac First Response). Members who joined up with the Glin branch will be contacted on a gradual basis to encourage same. This is an invaluable skill, as it involves treating members of our community who may suffer cardiac arrest. As a Cardiac First Responder, when you answer a call for help, you can be confident that you have given that person the best possible chance of recovery. You have provided the initial links in the chain of survival.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the local shops and business’s in the town that allowed us to put up the emergency contact number 0876230032 in laminate form on the windows of their premises. This is invaluable as this number should be accessible to all. Please put this number into your mobile phone if you have not already done so.
