Community Rescue Service volunteers who provide the primary response on behalf of the police in searching for high risk missing people in the lowland environment have delivered more than 10,000 face shields throughout Northern Ireland this week.
The shields, which can protect healthcare workers from the coronavirus while they treat infected patients, are made and produced by a number of Northern Ireland companies who have jointly come together as a non-profit project.
Regional Commander of CRS Sean McCarry said the shields have been delivered to first responders and healthcare facilities including hospitals and nursing homes.
Commenting Sean said “Our healthcare workers are doing a fantastic job – despite the exceedingly difficult situation they find themselves in. The supply of the much-needed face-shields is crucial, and we are delighted to be able to help where we can.”
Companies involved in supporting the non-profit project are:
Spera Brand Management
Denroy Group Ltd
