LIVES First Responders are community based volunteers trained and equipped
to provide emergency care to patients suffering:
* Cardiac arrest
* Breathing difficulty and choking
* Chest painIt is a proven fact that First Responders do improve survival from pre-hospital
cardiac arrest by the provision of Basic Life Support and Defibrillation.
The Chapel and Hogsthorpe group went 'live' on April 1st 2001 with 25
volunteers and provided emergency cover 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Since then the group has answered nearly 500 calls.The
group is financially sound thanks to generous local support from Pubs,
Clubs, Businesses and individual donations. Our main financial sponsor
John Toyne, J.T's Social Club, Chapel St Leonards, and his customers have
provided the group with its own car and each Responder with two customised
polo shirts, a fleece and reflective jacket.
Throughout Lincolnshire there are now over 90 First Responder Groups.
We are in urgent need of 'new blood'. It is easy to be trained, no previous
medical experience is necessary. You have to be over the age of 18, and
you can give as much or as little time as you feel able to.If you are interested please call me on the above number for a no obligation
chat. Better still, if you know any local Responders talk to them, they
are sure to help.
