Peterborough Community First Responder (CFR) Group is looking for additional volunteers. Community First Responders are volunteers who are trained by the East of England Ambulance Service to attend certain types of emergency calls in the area where they live or work. Their aim is to reach a potential life-threatening emergency in the first vital minutes before the ambulance crew arrives.
Anyone can become a community first responder but you must:
- be physically fit
- be aged between 18-70
- agree to a disclosure and barring service check (DBS). This was previously known as criminal records bureau disclosure or CRB.
- have a sympathetic, caring nature
- agree to undertake training, which is provided
- have a full driving licence and access to a road worthy car.
