Community First Responder (CFR)
South Central Ambulance NHS Foundation Trust (SCAS) are looking to recruit CFRs in the Faringdon area. CFRs are volunteers that are trained and equipped by the ambulance service to answer certain types of medical emergencies in their local communities while the ambulance is en route. There is good evidence that lives are saved if well trained people are able to start rendering aid in those vital seconds or minutes prior to the arrival of an ambulance.
On average, 150,000 people suffer Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) every year. Every minute that passes after somebody has suffered SCA the chance of a successful resuscitation reduces by about 14%. In areas where there are CFRs, the chance of survival reaches 20-25% as opposed to 4%!
All you need to join is to be over 18, have a full driving license, pass an enhanced criminal records check and be willing and able to give up some free time to help your community. If you are interested, please visit the SCAS website, hover over 'get involved' and click on 'community first responder'.
