Rapid Response to demonstrate new app



Roscommon Rapid Response, a group which says it intends to “make Co. Roscommon the safest place to have a cardiac arrest”, will host meetings in Roscommon and Castlerea next week to highlight a new mobile app aimed at coordinating responders.

  The new app is designed to allow the user achieve the highest chance of cardiac arrest survival by coordinating CPR responders, defibrillators and emergency services.  

  Those involved with community organisations or businesses and state organisations providing defibrillators in mid Roscommon are asked to attend the meetings on Monday and Tuesday of next week.

  The meetings will take place on Monday (18th) at Gleeson’s Townhouse in Roscommon at 8.30 pm and in The Hub Enterprise Centre in Castlerea on Tuesday (19th) at 8.30 pm.

  Roscommon Rapid Response will demonstrate how the app, which is currently available to download from the App Store, operates and how it will improve outcomes for cardiac arrest patients.
