As I’m sure many of you are aware, the East is England ambulance service and others nationally are struggling to maintain numbers of frontline ambulances and with the growing amount of calls, they’re being taken up. Community first responders are making up for a percentage of those ‘life or death’ calls that you may or may have not witnessed. This is why a community first responder kit is being fundraised, to try and start up a new group in St Albans
There are three groups based across St Albans, Bedfordshire and Welwyn Garden city. Another kit is being fundraised to hopefully start up a new group in St Albans. Now you ask, ‘why do you need to fundraise, surely the trust provides the kit?’ This is true, apart from the fact it’s not an original group. Only the first groups started by the trust are funded and provided kit. Others have to fundraise for their own kit.
Thank you in advance
