ACFR Launch

On 17th May we will hold the official launch of ACFR at the Pillo hotel from 8pm. All are welcome to help us celebrate our launch.

Ashbourne Cardiac First Responders (ACFR) was formed in early 2013 to set up a community first responder programme to serve Ashbourne and a 3km radius around the town. First Responders live in the community and respond with the National Ambulance Service to major medical emergencies, in particular sudden cardiac arrest. Since 3rd March 2014 the group is operational and responds with the National Ambulance Service in the Ashbourne area.

On the night we will have ACFR responders present to answer questions and demonstrate their training. The equipment purchased with our National Lottery grant and community donations will be on display.
