Your community desperately needs you...
The Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust urgently require Community First Responders in the Great Ayton and Stokesley areas. First Responders are usually, quite literally, the first on the scene and help provide immediate medical care to patients prior to the arrival of the emergency services.
"Community First Responders are trained in basic life-support, Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and oxygen therapy. They are equipped with a kit which includes oxygen and an automated external defibrillator (AED) to help patients in a medical emergency such as a heart attack, collapse or breathing difficulties".

Do you have what it takes to be a First Responder? If so, your community desperately needs you - it really is a matter of life and death.
