NUI GALWAY COVID SURVEY RESULTS TO BE REVEALED AT ‘RESPOND 2022’

The results of a survey by NUI Galway, to gain an insight into the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on Community First Responder (CFR) groups and schemes during the pandemic, will be presented at RESPOND 2022, which returns on Saturday 26 March 2022 at the Mullingar Park Hotel, Co. Westmeath.

The research team at NUI Galway, who recently completed their survey to gather the views of CFR volunteers (past and present) about the impact on CFR groups/schemes and the reactivation of CFR groups/schemes during the pandemic period, told ‘Emergency Services Ireland’ that over 340 CFRs around the country submitted their detailed responses.

According to research project team leaders Dr Eithne Heffernan and Dr Siobhán Masterson, “Many positive comments underscored the importance and value of Community First Response (CFR) schemes, as well as insights on the support required by these schemes following the pandemic.”
