Irish Community Rapid Response responded to an emergency call on a farm yesterday (Tuesday, November 17th).
In a brief post on social media last night, it said: “Today, we responded to an emergency call where a farmer had been seriously injured in an isolated rural location. We brought the patient to hospital for trauma care.”
“Nobody starts their day expecting to need us, but our crew are committed to providing timely and effective emergency care. It’s a frontline service that needs your support.”
That’s Farming has contacted Irish Community Rapid Response to request a statement and at the time of writing, is awaiting a response.
Providing care since 2008
Irish Community Rapid Response says it is committed to providing safe, effective, and timely emergency medical care to those seriously ill or injured in Ireland through the provision of a network of volunteer doctors, rapid response vehicles and air ambulance.
