Emergency Services

The South Central Ambulance Charity run the Wokingham Community First Responders are a group of volunteers who are trained by to preserve life and promote recovery in an emergency situation, by getting to the patient before the ambulance arrives. Community First Responders (CFRs) use lifesaving skills, such as the use of an automated external defibrillator (AED), to provide early and often vital intervention for patients suffering life threatening emergencies in the immediate vicinity of where they live or work. Once an ambulance crew arrives at the scene, CFRs work alongside a clinically qualified practitioner. Volunteers do not need previous first aid experience as full training is provided.  Volunteers must a driving licence and access to a car and be willing to commit to 20 hours per month.
