CFR's Make a Difference

“Toby is 7 years old and he has cerebral palsy and often has epileptic fits at night. On one occasion he had a severe fit, inhaled vomit and stopped breathing. The Community First Responder was there immediately and saved my sons life. They deserve all the help and support you can give them.”
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.
