Order of Malta Limerick are looking for volunteers at their latest Recruitment Drive
Order of Malta Ambulance Corps Limerick Launch Recruitment
With 2500 members across in 69 locations, the Order of Malta Ambulance Corps part of Order of Malta Ireland is one of the largest voluntary providers of First aid, ambulance and community care services in Ireland. They have been operating for over 70 years in Limerick City. 292,903 volunteer hours were given by Ambulance Corps Nationally in 2018.
Based out of their HQ in Davis Street, the Limerick Unit has a fleet of 3 vehicles at their disposal and are commonly seen throughout the city and county providing first aid and medical cover at both small and large public events from smaller community charity cycles to more complex large public gathering such as GAA matches at LIT Gaelic Grounds.
Speaking about the upcoming recruitment drive current Officer in Charge of the Limerick Unit Lieutenant Bryan Crosby said, “Members of all ages and abilities are welcome in the unit. You do not necessarily need first aid experience to join the unit, all training will be provided. Initially, all new members will be trained to the level of Cardiac First responder, enabling them to use a defibrillator and perform CPR. In addition, they will undergo child protection training and manual handling training also. After a time, if they wish to opt for further training to the levels of First Aid responder and Emergency First Responder this avenue could be pursued within the organisation.”
Deputy Officer in Charge Sergeant David O Sullivan went on to explain that apart from providing medical aid there are many other roles available to people in the unit if they wish to volunteer such as driving, administration support, vehicle maintenance and assisting with their cadet/youth section.
An introductory training day will take place on Saturday, July 20. To register a place for the day contact Dave at [email protected]. For more information regarding recruitment into the youth section (10-16-year-old) and to be placed on the September waiting list contact Amy at [email protected]
