Become a Community First Responder and help save lives

After an accident Community First Responder groups provide the first response before the arrival of the emergency services. A first responder is a person, trained in basic life support and the use of a defibrillator, who attends an actual or potentially life-threatening emergency.

Community First Responder groups receive formal training and sign up to a programme with the National Ambulance Service to provide that immediate response in their area.
