‘Respond 2023’ returns on Saturday 9 September and if you’re a Community First Responder (CFR), thinking of becoming one, or can offer training/services to CFRs, then this is the conference for you, according to CFR Ireland.

The conference is primarily for Community First Responders (CFRs), yet it will also appeal to anyone with an interest in information on ‘out of hospital cardiac arrest’ survival statistics and updates. All the main stakeholders will be in attendance, including the National Ambulance Service, the Pre-Hospital Emergency Care Council, the Irish Heart Foundation, Out of Hospital Cardiac Arrest Register, SADS and more.

The conference will be run in tandem with the trade exhibition area, showcasing the leading suppliers of first aid equipment, modern AEDs and storage cabinets on the Irish market. EireMed – Ireland’s largest supplier of pre-hospital emergency medical supplies – is once again the premium sponsor for Respond 2023. Visit for more information.

For those CFR Groups who have registered with CFR Ireland, all members will be entitled to a discount. CFR Ireland will send each group co-ordinator a discount code so that members may get a discount on the ticket price listed. For details or questions email

As with previous conferences, several practical workshops and sessions will take place, and CFR Ireland will email ticket holders with a link to choose their preferred sessions.
