Winter safety and wellbeing campaign launched by Limerick’s Public Services


screen-shot-2016-11-15-at-11-27-41A MAJOR new campaign has been launched in Limerick this week to highlight safety and wellbeing issues over the winter period. Limerick’s Public Services of Limerick City and County Council, An Garda Síochána and the HSE have joined forces and are working together to highlight some key messages over the coming weeks.

A pilot three-week radio campaign under the banner of Limerick’s Public Services Working together, has also begun.
Each week of the campaign focuses on a different area.
Week 1 (Monday 14 November) – relates to road safety and the impact that crashes have on people and the wider community.
Week 2 (Monday 21 November) – focuses on mental health and general wellbeing, especially during the winter period.
Week 3 (Monday 28 November) – focuses on safer communities and steps people can take to make their homes and communities more secure.
Inspector Paul Reidy, Head of the Limerick Garda Division Traffic Corps, Scott Keenan, Senior Assistant Chief Fire Officer with Limerick Fire and Rescue Service, and Dr Gareth Quin, Consultant in Emergency Medicine at University Hospital Limerick are all appealing to the people of Limerick to slow down, drive responsibly, and take simple steps to help prevent road incidents.
The hashtag #LKworkingtogether will be used on social media for the campaign.
