The Irish Red Cross is part of the largest global network of voluntary humanitarian action in the world -
The Irish Red Cross provides first aid cover at numerous events around the country every week. These events range from concerts to sports events to community festivals. Whatever the event, the Irish Red Cross can provide first aid cover to suit your needs. Our first aid cover at such events is provided by volunteer members who are trained to very high standards.
Some events that the Irish Red Cross covers include:
•Motor Cross Racing
•Cycle Racing including the FBD Milk Ras
•Motor Bike Racing
•Sporting fixtures including kick boxing, GAA, soccer, rugby and canoeing
For the provision of First Aid Cover, the country is split into 4 regions. Each region has a volunteer Regional Director of Units and each county has a volunteer Area Director of Units.
Should you wish to get first aid cover, be that first aiders and/or an ambulance, for an event that you are organising, please contact the relevent Regional Director.
Please note that sending an email with a query regarding first aid cover does not constitute a contract to provide said cover. Cover for an event will be confirmed in writing and is subject to availability of personnel and equipment.
