Over the years we have been following as well as being involved with the 112 Emergency Volunteers which are now known as CESV (Civil Emergency Service Volunteers) and it was good to note their recent activities.
On 20th of October 2019, they held their AGM at Pia Bella Hotel when Atilla Mahmutoglu retired as CESV 112 President and received a plaque from Steve Collard the CESV/112 Operations Director who was elected as the new President with Ümit Karaner as Vice President.
Steve Collard said of their future plans, “we are in the process of purchasing 28,000TL of new and replacement equipment for the ambulances and the health centres.”
They recently held a one-day training course for 15 enthusiastic trainees from Ipekey Ltd Lefkosa and the CESV 112 training team for the day was Steve Collard, Allan Lowden, Ümit Karaner, Diane Loftus and Gail Quelch.
