ROI is fully aware of the substantial time and costs that are incurred by both individuals and teams to travel to, participate and train for the National and International Challenges in the RTC and Trauma challenges that run throughout the year.
2 main streams are open to teams:
- To help support those that are interested in participating in events, for those that become placed at the Irish National Challenge run every year, ROI provide financial contributions to teams to enter and participate in other International events.
Since ROI is a registered Charity we are able to raise monies through sponsorship, collection etc at events that we support and run. In this light we could therefore “Support/Run” local events in your local area under the ROI Charity banner without the local repercussions that the Local Authority may have if it was just a number of their firefighters doing this for themselves.
If you are interested in progressing with this yourselves speak to Phil O'Hare, Declan Cassidy, Padraig O'Longaigh about the options available to do this.
