Milngavie Community First Responders

Welcome to the Milngavie Community First Responders.

 

We are a group of local volunteers, who respond to 999 calls in the Milngavie and Bearsden area.

 

The scheme is run by The Scottish Ambulance Service, but the first responder team is completely self-funded, so we rely on fundraising and kind donations by local people and businesses to keep operational.

 

If you can support us by making a donation, or by volunteering your time with us as a responder, we would be very happy to hear from you. Contact us here..

 

We have been specifically trained to deal with calls relating to cardiac arrest (heart attacks) and other heart related conditions.

 

A study published in an October 2000 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine suggests that survival rates are highest when defibrillation (an electrical stimulation given to re-start the heart) is delivered within three minutes of the time of collapse.
