14th July: Civil Defence in Roscommon specialist training

Over 30 officers from the Civil Defence in Roscommon received specialist training to step up to provide a back up to  the ambulance service if the Covid 19 pandemic reached unmanageable proportions for the health system – thankfully that did not arise.   Fergal Conroy who is almost a year in his new role as Roscommon Civil Defence Officer has been speaking to MaryClaire about those preparations and his first year in the job.
