First Responders Group will benefit Newtownhamilton Community – Ó Muirí

August 20, 2018

Sinn Féin Councillor Barra Ó Muirí says he is delighted that a First Responders Group is to be set up in Newtownhamilton.

Speaking after the first public meeting of the First Responders Group in the town on Thursday evening last (14th August), the local councillor said,  

“Following an initial meeting last month, there has been a great level of interest within the town towards the establishment of such a Group. 

“There is an unfortunate deficit in accident and emergency cover in the general south Armagh area which most of us believe can only be alleviated by the establishment of an Ambulance substation. That campaign is ongoing, however I have no doubt that those living within this area will benefit from the additional resource of a First Responders Group.”

Anyone wishing to volunteer as a First Responder in Newtownhamilton should contact the Newtown Community Association.
