CFR Boher Annual General Meeting

No comments

At the CFR Boher Annual General meeting held recently, the community discussed the overall working of the scheme which has been in place for 2 years.  We are getting approximately 1 call out per month, covering 70% of time supporting the National Ambulance Service in the area.  Training is held on a regular basis, and members of the community are invited to learn CPR techniques at drop-in sessions for their personal benefit, while volunteers are trained to Pre-Hospital Emergence Care Council (PHECC) standards by Irish Water Safety (Limerick City) instructors, Ita Richardson and Paul Earls.  Over 20 people have been volunteers with CFR Boher over the past 2 years, with 10 people currently active, with each volunteer giving up to 72 hours per month to the scheme.   If anyone is interested in finding out more about the scheme, joining the committee, helping with fundraising or volunteering, please contact us at cfrboher@gmail.com.  We would like to thank everyone who has helped with CFR Boher, our volunteers, Boher Development Committee and those who have supported us financially including local anonymous donation (€750), Bank of Ireland and Abington Hygiene.
