The Department of Rural and Community Development recently announced details for the First Response Support Measure.

CLÁR (Ceantair Laga Árd-Riachtanais) is a targeted investment programme for rural areas that aims to provide funding for small infrastructural projects in areas that experience disadvantage. The aim of CLÁR is to support the sustainable development of identified CLÁR areas with the aim of attracting people to live and work there. The funding works in conjunction with local/Agency and other Departmental funding programmes and on the basis of locally identified priorities.

Voluntary groups that are involved in emergency rescue/first response are eligible if they are located in a designated CLÁR area.

Full details of the scheme can be viewed here.

Please note that applications are to be submited on this form to by 28th April 2018.

Easy to use. Easy to own. Easy to maintain.

The all-new ZOLL AED 3™ Automated External Defibrillator makes the best even better. It improves on the best support for rescuers, provided by the AED Plus® since 2002. Designed and built upon years of usability research with both trained and untrained rescuers, it’s easy to use. And it’s equipped with improved Real CPR Help®, ZOLL’s real-time CPR feedback technology.

The ZOLL AED 3 is easy to own because the continuing cost of ownership is surprisingly low, with universal adult/paediatric electrode pads and a battery that last five years.

And it’s easy to maintain because Programme Management Onboard™ cloud-connects via WiFi to ZOLL’s PlusTrac™ AED programme management system. No maintenance inspections needed.
