People from all over the country have got in touch with me regarding the Life Saving Equipment Bill and I am very grateful for that input. Irish Water Safety and Community First Responders (CFR Ireland) fully support the Bill and have offered technical guidance with the draft legislation.

The support I have received for the Bill, which if enacted introduces a specific new offence of interfering with lifesaving equipment, has been overwhelming.

An online petition, calling on the Government to support the Bill, has over 16,000 signatures so far. It can be viewed and signed here: https://www.change.org/p/oireachtas-support-the-life-saving-equipment-bill-2017

I am hopeful that Second Stage of the Bill will be before the Seanad in the coming weeks.
