Tralee’s new Community Responder Scheme has gone live.

 

The scheme sees a team of volunteers assist the National Ambulance Service in life-threatening emergencies.

Emergency calls for it will be sent by ambulance control to the pagers of the responders who are on-call.

 

It will attend calls for choking, stroke, chest pain and cardiac arrest within the 5km radius, which is centred at the railway flyover on the Tralee Bypass.
