Irish Event Industry rallying resources to assist Emergency Services

by Gazette Reporter

The Event Industry Association of Ireland (EIAI) has announced a drive to support Ireland’s Emergency Services during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

All available stakeholders from across the country’s Event Industry are now being called upon to register their details at the association’s newly re-launched website at www.eiai.ie. Information on resources available will be provided live to frontline and critical services at this address.

Existing EIAI members along with other industry professionals including Project Managers, Safety Officers, Site Managers and those with skills in other areas are being called upon to join the EIAI’s new live listing of available professionals.

Service providers who work within Ireland’s Event Industry are meanwhile asked to offer details of equipment, resources and services which are currently available, and which may be of assistance to the emergency services over the coming weeks.

In addition, a team of expert industry professionals will be on hand every day over the coming weeks to offer support and guidance to the emergency services via a dedicated hotline number.

Elaine O’Connor, Co-Founder, Event Industry Association of Ireland, said: “The Irish Emergency Services have provided valuable support to our industry and now is our turn for us to offer our assistance to them in any way we can. We are calling on professionals and service providers from across the industry to register their availability, as well as details of the equipment, resources and services they can offer, at EIAI.ie. 

“The Event Industry is uniquely positioned to respond to the needs of our Emergency Responders, Management Teams, Critical and Essential Frontline Services at this time, with the ability to provide vital equipment, resources, services and skilled professionals nationwide”.
