About Ashford Community First Responders

The primary role of a Community First Responder (CFR) is to provide life-saving emergency treatment in their local area. To prevent deterioration, promote recovery, preserve life. Each day, approximately 170 people in the UK suffer a Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA). Early defibrillation within the first few minutes can save up to 75% of all SCA’s. In addition, CFRs carry other medical equipment including dressings, oxygen and some drugs. This further benefits patients whilst waiting for an ambulance. Our team is responsible for Ashford and its surrounding villages. We are always looking for new members and hoping to provide greater cover aiming one day for 24/7 cover. Community First Responders are volunteer members of the community who are trained to respond to emergency calls through the 999 system in conjunction with the South East Coast Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust. Community responders are not a substitute for the ambulance crews, but because they are based within the community in which they live or work, they are able to attend the scene of an emergency in a very short time often within the first few minutes and in the majority of incidents they would be first on scene. The responder can then begin vital lifesaving first aid before the arrival of an ambulance, further increasing the patient’s chance of survival.

"I run a not for profit Community Interest Company and shared our cause. Very easy to use, templates ready to share on social media, with direct links to our page and pop up reminders installed for when I was shopping with numerous websites, where I could gain the free donation. Excellent service and a fabulous idea."
