Call for Donegal Fire Service to step in as first responders

It’s thought the Donegal Fire Service could step in as first responders in some 999 calls.

Fire personnel are already trained to administer first aid and use defibrillators when an emergency arises.

A motion is to be brought forward at the adjourned sitting of Donegal County Council by Cllr Michael McClafferty.

However in response the Council says that the fire service is not resourced to provide a medical source to the public.

Cllr McClafferty is disappointed as he believes that the initiative could help alleviate some of the problems being faced by the overall system:
