Community First Responders

"Volunteers" Taking Care to the Patient




Ever thought of volunteering in your community?

Read on below to see what's involved.

What is a First Responder?

The Resuscitation Council (UK) states that a First Responder is “a person, trained as a minimum in basic life support and the use of a defibrillator, who attends a potentially life-threatening emergency.”

Who is a Community First Responder?

A Community First Responder is a local volunteer who agrees to undertake training in Basic Life Support. This then enables them to provide life saving treatment to those people within the community who are critically ill, in the first few minutes prior to the arrival of an ambulance.

What type of incidents do Community First Responders get sent to?

Community First Responders can expect to be sent to:

Chest Pain,

Cardiac Arrest

Difficulty in Breathing or Choking

Medical Collapse or Unconscious Patients


Over 550 callouts and 9000 hours to date

We need more volunteers for more cover.
