Endmoor and District - First Responders:

What Can You Do To Help?,

Can I donate money or help with fund raising?
Yes. As we have only recently setup the First Responders, we need both money and support to help us. If you can spare a donation or would like to help us raise money please contact us here. Please remember the First Responders can only help our community through the support of individuals like you.
Can I become a First Responder?
Yes. Please contact us here, for more information
Where are First Responders needed?
Cumbria Ambulance Service considers a range of criteria when assessing the benefits of setting up a team in a certain area. These include communities where following a medical collapse; it would be difficult for an ambulance to reach the patient within the critical 8 minutes and areas where there are high levels of people in transit, such as motorway service stations and tourist attractions.
Who could be a First Responder?
A Community First Responder must be at least 18 years of age, physically fit and able to meet the required standards of proficiency after training. They should also be trustworthy and reliable, have a mature outlook on life and able to deal with potentially difficult and emotional situations.
All volunteers are required to complete an application for a Criminal Records Bureau enhanced level clearance. Applications by individuals that have previous criminal convictions, including serious motoring offences (i.e. drink driving) will be declined. Applicants who when applying do not disclose details of previous offences (even at more minor levels) will be declined.
What does First Responder training involve?
Every volunteer will receive training in the delivery of Basic Life Support (BLS) and the use of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED). Along with 'soft skills', training in following required procedures is also provided.
Following training, each volunteer will be assessed for competence in the delivery of BLS and the use of the AED. There is a statutory requirement to take refresher training at least every three months and reassessment every six months.
