Life-savers on buses

CITY Direct Bus company has just announced the introduction of mobile defibrillators on its buses – the first bus company in Ireland to do this.

City Direct, the largest operator outside public service provider Bus Eireann, has just installed defibrillators on two of its buses and plans to roll out the scheme to the rest of its fleet in 2014.

"This also means that every City Direct driver will be first aid trained, indicating a massive investment from the company into the health and safety of their passengers," the company said in a statement.
