Council to get Lifebuoy alert system

A leading water and wastewater treatment company announced how it will supply Limerick County Council with a remote text alert technology so the council can be informed immediately when one of its lifebuoys, located at waterways around the county, have been tampered with or moved.

Response Group is to contribute technical assistance for the development and rollout of this pilot project as part of an ongoing Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative.

The Water Safety initiative will involve the purchase and installation of telemetric technology to be fitted to lifebuoys at six locations in Limerick County. The technology will work to prevent lifebuoys in the region from being stolen or vandalised. When a lifebuoy is moved from its location, the telemetric technology will send a text message to Limerick County Council alerting them to what has happened and allowing them to resolve the situation.

Response Group has committed financial assistance towards the development, installation and integration of the necessary equipment.

Speaking on behalf of Response Group, Geoff O'Sullivan Chief Operating Officer, said: 'We are delighted to be able to assist Limerick County Council with this project and we are looking forward to providing and maintaining the technology and range of services necessary to make this project a success. I'd also like to commend our technology partner Mike Mc Ennis from Celtrak for his work on this initiative.'
