Marlow & District Community 1st Responders

– on call to save lives in your community.

Marlow and District Community First Responders is a group of equipped volunteers, trained by South Central Ambulance Service (SCAS). Mobilised by Ambulance Control they respond to certain types of medical emergencies and initiate
treatment while the ambulance is en-route.

So why are they needed? The chances of saving a life can be greatly increased by early intervention, which can be as vital as just a minute or two. For every minute that passes following a cardiac arrest, the chances of survival decreases by 10%. Early access means, if needed, early resuscitation, early defibrillation and early advanced
life support.

This type of scheme isn’t a new concept, there are many such schemes around the country, which make a real difference and have saved many lives over the years. SCAS train responders to help patients suffering from cardiac related
problems, breathing difficulties, severe bleeding, diabetic emergencies and
unconscious casualties, all of which will benefit from early treatment.

Community First Responders can save these vital minutes as their homes are their bases, from which they are deployed simultaneously with the Ambulance by Ambulance Control. Because their homes are in the locality, they should arrive before the Ambulance to provide emergency life support and reassurance to relatives and friends.

If you would like to show your support for the job they do, why not sponsor a piece of equipment or make Marlow and District Community First Responders your charity for next year. They are a voluntary organization, therefore they have to raise the funds to operate the scheme. They are supported by St John Ambulance and South Central Ambulance Service, but there are items they have to provide for themselves. Items such as magnetic signs to put on the sides of responder vehicles, additional kits and defibrillators to expand the team, and many more pieces of equipment could increase efficiency and make a life or death difference. In addition, the kit that has been kindly donated by SCAS League of Friends will eventually need replacing, therefore they require funds to cover this eventuality.

To purchase such equipment they are relying on the generosity of the public, local businesses and organizations. Marlow and District Community First Responders would be very grateful for any donation or sponsorship that you are able to provide the scheme, whether this is by raising some general funds, purchasing a defibrillator or maybe even a complete kit. In return sponsorship badges or plates could be displayed on the piece of equipment or kit bag.

It currently costs £1,575 to buy a defibrillator and a SatNav system would cost around £90-£120 for each Responder.
