Emergency team open days
The Millport Emergency team are holding two open days during the Easter weekend on Saturday April 15 and Sunday 16th - they have purchased a gazebo and will be hosting the events in it on Saturday from 11am till 4pm and Sunday from 12pm till 4pm.
All the equipment the team has available in case of an emergency or even a power cut will be on display. The work of the team is especially relevant with the electricity situation at the moment with the cables and they are on stand by.
The team collected names and details of which people would need assistance in case of emergencies especially those who couldn't get out. They will be collating this again at the open days, and invite people to go along and fill in the form. The team have cookers, gas, flasks and torches and many items which might be needed in case of an emergency. Look out for the gazebo in the vicinity of the town. It is marked Cumbrae Support Team - they will also be doing two demonstrations of the defibrillator they have and the times will be advertised on a board at their stand. They are hoping to raise funds for another defibrillator which can be readily available to the public.
