Dundrum Donation - A note of thanks
Tuesday, 01 April 2014 08:31

Recently, the Dundrum division of St John Ambulance Ireland received an incredibly generous donation from local man Michael Alison.

This donation took the form of a projector and screen, resuscitation mannequins, a training defibrillator and a fully functional AED, used in cases of cardiac arrest in an effort to revive patients.

This donation and ones like it are vital to ensure that St John Ambulance can continue its life-saving work across the country.

St John Ambulance Ireland has been operational in Dundrum, Co. Dublin since 1986, when a cadet division first opened in the area. Ten years later a senior, division was founded, broadening the organisation’s service to the south Dublin community.

Over the intervening years, St John Ambulance Ireland has been successful in ensuring its raison d’être has been fulfilled in Dundrum and the wider Dublin 14 area – that first aid should be immediately accessible by anyone, irrespective of where or what they are doing at the onset of injury or illness.

Despite being one of the smaller divisions of the organisation, Dundrum provided an impressive 1000 man-hours of voluntary service to the community in 2013.

This service was recognised by the community in 2013; the division was awarded the Judge’s Merit prize for voluntary contribution to the community at the Community Awards.

As St John Ambulance Ireland is entirely voluntary and receives no state funding, the organisation has always relied on donations, whether equipment or financial, to ensure its continued success

St John Ambulance always strives to strengthen its reputation for excellence in areas with a long history of service, while also expanding into new regions.
