HOW DOES IT WORK?

If a CFR is available and a ‘999’ call is received within a 10 minutes travelling time from their location, the Ambulance Service will ask them to respond if the incident is appropriate.

WHY ARE CFRs IMPORTANT?

In many illnesses or injuries, the first few minutes are critical and simple interventions can be performed in order to save lives or prevent disability.

WHAT DO CFRs GO TO?

Our Community First Responders are trained to deal with medical emergencies and often attend varying 999 incidents.
