Cork Boat Club signs an agreement with the Emergency Services
The need for adequate and safe launching facilities in the upper river area for agencies responding to emergencies and river searches has been long recognised. A jointly funded project by Port of Cork and Cork City Council has ensured that the eastern slipway at Cork Boat Club is operational and fit for purpose. This project is now completed and as a result to ensure continual sharing of the facilities, a memorandum of understanding (MOU) between Cork Boat Club, Port of Cork, Cork City Fire Brigade and Cork City Civil Defence was signed April 8th 2014.

Interagency Emergency On-Site Control Unit
The Inter-Agency Emergency Management office is comprised of five key agencies:
- An Garda Siochana
- HSE South
- Local Authority - Cork County Council
- Local Authority - Cork City Council
- Local Authority - Kerry County Council
As part of a joint initiative by the Inter-Agency Emergency Management Office within the Major Emergency Management Region South, three Inter-Agency Emergency On-Site Control Units have been purchased. Their role is to enhance on-site co-ordination between the principal response agencies. It is envisaged that these vehicles will be used as the on-site co-ordination centre if a serious event occurs that requires the involvement of all the PRA's. They contain communication systems, an on-board meeting room, tent and generator.
