ECAS (Emergency call Answering Service)

At some point in your life, you may need to call emergency services such as firemen, police, or medical personnel. By being prepared for calling emergency services, you can get the help you need much more quickly, which can make a big difference in an emergency. Parents should also teach their children about when and how to call for help. The principal emergency services are the “blue light” services that respond to normal emergencies in Ireland, namely An Garda Síochána, the Ambulance Service, the Fire Service and the Irish Coast Guard. The principal emergency services would be the first services to respond to most emergencies.
