February was Another Busy Month for the ICRR
Figures released by the Irish Community Rapid Response (ICRR) Air Ambulance helicopter service for the moth of February show that they operated 41 missions during the month. Cork and Kerry both had twelve missions each and the rest were spread across the rest of Munster.
Many of these taskings required a transfer to the hospital either due to the patient’s injuries or the urgency of the situation. The ICRR transferred 13 patients in February with nine patients going to Cork University Hospital, two for University Hospital Limerick and one each to University Hospital Kerry and Temple Street Children’s Hospital in Dublin. The mission for Dublin required the air ambulance to drop the patient at Dublin Airport for onward transport by ambulance to Temple Street.
During the month of March, the ICRR is holding a fundraiser for people to ‘March through March’ by doing 10,000 steps a day for 31 days. More details can be found on the ICRR Facebook page here.
