A talk presented by members of the local fire brigade was described as “wonderful, interesting, thorough and comprehensive” by a member of the Greystones Active Retirement Association (GARA) as they enjoyed their monthly coffee morning at the at Killian House Family Centre.
Mark Atkins and Leigh Hillen joined the members to discuss fire safety in the home and PRO of the GARA Hilary Taylor said everyone was “deeply impressed” by both their knowledge and their delivery. “They gave us leaflets, spoke to us about smoke alarms, carbon monoxide alarms, defibrillators, and general fire safety in the home.
“They admitted that we probably already knew 90 per cent of what they were talking about but it’s good to be reminded of this stuff on a regular basis.”
A workshop on CPR is planned for the coming month and the group intends to work with the Irish Cancer Society for this year’s Daffodil Day on March 24.
