Plans are afoot in Garsdale to create a Community First Responder Group which has received support from the Parish Council.
Additional volunteers from the area are now required to form the group.
Community First Responder volunteers are trained to attend emergency calls received by the ambulance service and provide care until the ambulance arrives.
Due to the remote location of Garsdale and the possible time it may take an ambulance to arrive at an emergency scene, it is felt that the group will provide a very beneficial service to the community.
Volunteers will operate on a rota system, need to have use of a personal car, and will be required to attend a free approved training course which requires annual assessment.For more information see http://www.sja.org.uk/sja/what-we-do/community-first-responders.aspx.
