CFR's Make a Difference
Caroline, Toby's mum
"I am eternally grateful to the Community First Responders who responded so quickly when I went in to cardiac arrest whilst on holiday. I am very aware that the early intervention of these volunteers quite probably saved my life. I wish Community Responders all the success possible"
Kathleen, holidaying on Hayling Island
As you see, Community Responders can (and do) save people who may be just to far from the nearest ambulance. CFR's are volunteer members of your community who are trained to respond to emergency calls through the 999 system in conjunction with the Ambulance Service. Each scheme raises the money within the local community to purchase the equipment it needs. South Central Ambulance Service CFR's rely on donations from a wide variety or sources to enable it to continue.
