First aid and ambulance cover

Our Work Ireland Ambulance

The Irish Red Cross has a fleet of 140 vehicles. These include road ambulances, off-road ambulances and minibuses. All our vehicles meet the required standard of the Pre-Hospital Emergency Care Council (PHECC), which are in line with HSE standards.

The Irish Red Cross provides first aid cover at numerous events around the country every week, ranging 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 Pre-Hospital Emergency Care Council (PHECC) standards.

For the provision of First Aid cover, the country is split into four 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 for an event - such as qualified first aid personnel and/or an ambulance, please contact the relevant Regional Director (see below).

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.
