Wicklow Rapid Response (WWRR) is a voluntary group working in partnership with and supporting the existing Emergency Services. Our Rapid Response vehicle and volunteer doctor is a declared National Ambulance Service Asset and is called simultaneously with the state services when a serious emergency occurs.

Our team voluntarily supports their community by responding to these life threatening emergencies. Our goal is to establish a higher level of voluntary critical care pre hospital which will complement the CFR and NAS activity in Co Wicklow and beyond. It is our belief that enhanced critical care pre hospital can be lifesaving and that every county should have such a scheme in time. We hope that over the few years that we have additional Rapid Response Vehicles in Co. Wicklow in addition to supporting off duty paramedics/advanced paramedics with equipment and defibrillators.
