Congratulations to all the First Responders that were presented with their
certificates on Friday 24th August. At the presentation Lady Captain, Brid
Gilmore told of how in 2015 a member collapsed on the golf course. Thanks to
some individuals with “cool heads” being on hand, a doctor and ambulance were
called and the patient was revived. “TOO CLOSE FOR COMFORT”.
The Men’s Captain in 2015, Noel Coen suggested that the club purchase a
defibrillator. Thanks to generous donations from members, the Wednesday Seniors
and special golf competitions, a defibrillator was installed in the club. The ORDER
OF MALTA through Majella Killeen organised training. Thankfully the first group
had no urgent calls to deal with.
The new group are as follows: Ray Moore, Des Kenny, Joe Burke,
Margaret Smyth, Margaret Kenny, Anne Burke, Donal Killeen, Siobhan Fallon,
Joe Keane, John Fallon (Mountbellew), Gerry T. Flaherty, Paddy Flaherty.
“The AIM of any First Responder should be to perform CPR well and try
defibrillation if an AED is available. You are successful as a First Responder
if you carry out your skills WELL”. Taken from Pre-Hospital Emergency Care
Council Student Handbook.
Quoting Brid Gilmore at the presentation of certificates to the new group:
“all of us in the club wish all of you well as First Responders”.
