Although we can't all support community projects financially, our time is usually more readily available
Woking Community First Responder

Could you be a First Responder?

Community First Responders volunteer their spare time to be available for selected 999 calls to help other members of the community.

Volunteers can be male or female, aged over 21. They must have access to a car and be able to attend emergency calls from either their home or place of work as soon as they are received.

While a responder is on call they can continue with their normal day to day activities whilst at home, but must be ready to drop everything and attend a call should one arise.

A Community First Responder needs to be extremely reliable and trustworthy, good under pressure, able to remain calm in emergency situations, be caring when dealing with patients and have a good level of physical fitness.

Prospective responders have to undergo a Criminal Records Bureau Check (CRB) which is carried out by the Ambulance Trust and will need to pass an interview.

If you think you could help, then please get in touch.
