‘Thank You For Your Heroic Work’ – Praise For Emergency Services

1 Mins read


Councillor William McCandless has thanked Causeway Coast & Glens emergency services and the Northern Ireland Air Ambulance for their hard work throughout the week. The last week has saw a number of incidents throughout the Borough.

“Over the past few days my time has been taken up with visiting relatives in hospital and I realised I forget all too often to pay tribute to the doctors, nurses and auxiliary staff who care for those in the Causeway Hospital. Certainly the care, concern and commitment which has been shown to my relatives has been exemplary.

While the most of us are on holidays or planning to go on holidays the work of the emergency services continues, in fact this has been an extremely busy week for the NIFRS, PSNI, N.I. Ambulance service, Coastguard service, RNLI and Air Ambulance.

When I read of their involvement on Causeway Coast Commmunity concerning theft of livestock, dealing with gorse fires, road traffic collisions, car on fire outside Armoy, fire at gate lodge in Limavady, road traffic accidents, bonfires being set alight prematurely, swimmers in difficulty, it reinforced to me the severe pressure they have endured this week.

The sacrifice and dedication of the emergency services needs to be acknowledged for a superlative performance this week. We are so fortunate in this country to benefit from these capable and highly committed officers and staff.

Thank you for the time and energy you devote to making our Borough a safer place to live in.”

Northern Ireland Fire & Rescue Services faced nearly 3,000 calls in one day this week due to increased gorse blazes and “exceptional” hot weather across the province.
