Ratoath Heart Safe Initiative: Ratoath Cardiac First Responder Group. For the past year the group have been receiving contributions from the local community for the establishment of a Cardiac First Responder service for the Ratoath area. The group are still in discussion with the ambulance service as it is necessary to agree a protocol for their input to the service. In the meantime the group have purchased as AED (Defibrillator) and it will be located in the church. It is available, if required, for use by trained persons from the group or anyone who has been trained in the use of a defibrillator. A heartfelt thanks to all who have supported the group so far.
