Muintir na Tíre has been allocated funding by the Department of Rural and Community Development to install Carbon Monoxide alarms in the homes of elderly and vulnerable persons. This programme is aimed at persons who do not have existing alarms and do not have the resources to install alarms themselves. It will be rolled out through Muintir Community Alert Groups and Community Councils. These groups will apply for alarms for residents in their areas and will install them on a voluntary basis. They are battery powered alarms so installation is straightforward. Eligible groups should apply using the forms below. The application form should be returned to the Development Officer responsible for your area, as follows:

Tipperary, Wexford, Kilkenny, Waterford, Carlow. Margaret Quinn. or (086) 6000 754
