Community First Responder Boher has been running for almost 2 years, and we have answered approximately one call per month during that time. We cover the area south Barrington’s bridge-Farnane-Rath within Murroe-Boher parish, as shown in the attached map.
There are currently 11 active trained volunteers. Volunteers carry an Automated External Defibrillator (AED), and are called out by the National Ambulance Service when an emergency call is made for heart attack, chest pain, stroke and choking.
