Have you ever thought of working for the emergency services as a volunteer? The South Western Ambulance Service NHS Trust’s Volunteering and Community Services Department is looking for new volunteers in Wiltshire to join our existing Community First Responder (CFR) teams. CFRs are members of the public that are provided with first class training, equipment, uniform and support to respond to 999 calls in their community ahead of the arrival of an ambulance. Sometimes the difference is providing reassurance prior to the arrival of an ambulance; sometimes it is delivering critical care.

The Trust covers one of the most rural areas of the UK and we are committed to providing the population of the South West with the highest standard of out-of-hospital care. We are extremely grateful to the many volunteers who support us and help members of their local community in their time of need.

Every day, volunteers from across the South West support us in many roles. CFRs attend emergencies within their local communities.

For further information, please visit https://www.swast.nhs.uk/welcome/community-first-responders/community-first-responders-information or contact Dave Wilmot, Community Responder Officer for Wiltshire at David.Wilmot@SWAST.NHS.UK, or scan the QR code on one of our posters.
