When the country was in the grip of one of the worst weather events in over forty years, Bonmahon Coast Guard Unit worked tirelessly to provide assistance to Whitfield.
While elective procedures were cancelled, Whitfield experienced challenges in maintaining some services. Despite the treacherous conditions, Bonmahon Coast Guard Unit transported many of Whitfield’s medical staff to and from the hospital and were instrumental in ensuring that there was no disruption in the service provided to patients.
The support received from the Irish Coast Guard during this challenging event was invaluable and only served to highlight the dedication, commitment and courage of the volunteers of the Irish Coast Guard service.
Officer in Charge Brian Fleming and Deputy Officer in Charge Brian Reville, of Bonmahon Coast Guard Unit recently met with Whitfield’s Senior Management team, who thanked them for providing their resources to Whitfield during Storm Emma.
Whitfield made a donation to the Solas Cancer Support Centre on behalf of the Bonmahon Coast Guard Unit.
