MSP Pays Tribute To Red Cross Volunteers

Banff & Buchan MSP Stewart Stevenson paid a visit to the Wizard Music Festival at New Deer to meet with Red Cross emergency response and first aid volunteers. Mr Stevenson was invited by the Red Cross to visit their volunteers 'on site' and see at first hand how they handle major public events.

The Red Cross provided first aid cover at the Wizard Festival and their operation there involved around 25 volunteers and some staff. The Red Cross covered the event throughout the weekend and was on hand to support the emergency services should an emergency have arisen.

Commenting following his visit, Stewart Stevenson MSP said:

"I was very pleased to accept the invitation from the Red Cross to pay them a visit whilst on 'active service'.

"Red Cross first aid volunteers are highly trained individuals that are well equipped to deal with any type of emergency that members of the public may face and are there to ensure there is a smooth running of the event that everyone can enjoy.

"Many of us take for granted our safety at outdoor public events, but ill-health can strike at any time and medical emergencies can and do arise. When they do, it is very reassuring to know that expert help is at hand and I pay tribute to the men and women of the Red Cross who give up their time at these events to ensure that others can have a safe and enjoyable visit."
