BDCFR LogoBrewood and District Community First Responder Group has now been operational for 6 months and had over 200 calls in this time! We are at present a group of 8 volunteers who have all been fully trained by Staffordshire Ambulance Service to respond to all 999 calls within our community to provide emergency first aid until the arrival of an ambulance. We do not replace the ambulance service we work in conjunction with them.

We are presently able to provide 90% cover but would like to make that 100% so our community has a responder on call all of the time. That’s where we need your help. We need more volunteers to join our group. We need more people to train as responders, you can live anywhere in the parish be it Brewood, Coven, Bishops Wood or Coven Heath, once qualified and operational a first responder will be mobilised by Staffordshire ambulance service control to attend 999 calls within the parish boundaries hopefully arriving on the scene within five minutes to give emergency care until the arrival of an ambulance, in rural areas it could take up to 20 minutes for an ambulance to arrive and in cases where time is crucial such as cardiac arrest or severe trauma our attendance could be the difference between life and death.
 
But if training as a responder is not for you we need more people to join our committee to help us fundraise. As a registered charity we have to raise all the funds to keep the group operational.
 
Anyone interested in joining the group or just wants to find out more please contact our coordinator Paul Danby on 01902 851223 or email firstresponders@brewood24.fsnet.co.uk
