Howth CG was tasked today at 14.00 to a collapsed person on the West pier. A crew member was at the station and went immediately to the scene. Further volunteers arrived quickly along with a team EMT and paramedic. Advanced First aid was given until the arrival of an ambulance and the person was then transferred to hospital.
While standing down and having returned to the station the team were retasked to a second collapse near the same spot as the first. The person had been swimming and felt extremely unwell. First aid was given on scene by the team until a second ambulance arrived. Thanks to Fingal lifeguards who supplied an AED.
