Following a planning process that began in late 2011, the CRS tonight began safety patrols in the area around the River Lagan in Belfast City Centre. This is the first step in an ongoing process to provide assistance to those in difficulty in that area. The CRS Belfast Unit is currently leading the way in providing this service in support of the police and other emergency services with the support of CRS members from around the province.

Belfast Unit

Belfast Unit Safety Patrols had a busy night tonight - 1. At the request of the Community Safety Team, medical assistance was provided to a female suspected of being 'spiked'. The patient was handed over to NIAS. 2. The CRS Urban Bike Team intervened with a male who had tried to go over the river railings at the rear of the Odyssey on two separate occasions. 3. A CRS Safety Patrol team monitored a middle aged male sleeping behind the Waterfront. While a report was being passed to the PSNI the gentleman disappeared from view. Fearing that the person may have went into the river all areas were checked and the person was subsequently located in the Hilton. 4. The CRS Urban Bike Team located a person matching the description of the misper which was discounted. This person appearing disorientated was provided with assistance in arranging to get home. 5. While searching for the original misper a CRS Safety Patrol team provided medical assistance to a visiting Canadian gentleman who had fallen and sustained a head injury. The patient was subsequently handed over to NIAS. The teams were eventually stood down at 04.15. Please see the Belfast Facebook page, just look for Belfast Community Rescue.
