Wexford Civil Defence took part in the Wexford Maritime Festival on Wexford Quays from Saturday 1st July to Sunday 2nd July. 31 Volunteers over the two days provided medical and communications cover for the event. As part of the festival we also had a display consisting of vehicles, equipment, drones and boats. Showcasing the equipment and vehicles we use to provide services to the community. We had a number of expressions on Interest in joining the organisation.
The Fire appliance proved very popular with the children for photo opportunities and a chance to try on helmets and fire gear. The drones proved popular for children and the adults alike, with great interest in how we use them. Minister Paul Kehoe dropped in during the day to add his support and have a look the vehicles, equipment and drones.
Thanks again to all the members of the public who dropped by to say hello to our volunteers and take interest in the equipment and vehicles we use.
