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.

  • Marlow Members form Guard of Honour for Olympians & Paralympians at Higginson Park Reception


    Higginson Park played host to our local Olympians and Paralympians last weekend with a 'meet and greet the public' event in the Park, followed by a reception in Court Gardens hosted by Wycombe District Council.  Marlow Rowing Club members formed a Guard of Honour along with Marlow Hockey Club.  

  • Adrian Kerridge

    It is with regret we have to announce Adrian Kerridge passed away last week after suffering a heart attack.



    Adrian had been a member of Marlow Rowing Club for over 40 years and was a generous man; benefactor and donor to the club. He was keen on seeing the juniors of the club develop and prosper and was one of stalwarts of the Marlow Regatta Committee. In this latter role Adrian was normally charged with organising the public address and communications systems which he discharged professionally each year (Adrian owned and ran a successful recording studio as his profession). Adrian rowed and sculled in a wide variety of crews and successfully competed for the club. In the 80's he rowed in a successful four which included Peter Blaseby, John Ladbon and Peter Bayfield. Other occasional members of this four were John Gill and Chris Lenton. More latterly he sculled with Peter Blaseby in a double.

    Adrian’s generosity to the club was immense - it included financial support for a variety of projects and boat acquisitions over many years and more recently he was a Gold Donor in the scheme to rebuild the club after the fire. He also donated the Kerridge Cup which was awarded each year to the overall winner of the Marlow Fours and Pairs Head normally held in October. Adrian was elected Vice President for his services to the club. 

    The funeral will be at 1.30 p.m. on Friday 14th October at St. Peter's Catholic Church, St. Peter Street, Marlow. The Wake will take place at MRC from 2.30 p.m. There will be a private family burial and I think the family will arrive at MRC at approx. 3.15.

    There are two specific requests

    1.       No black so blazers are in order

    2.       No flowers, donations to Marlow RC President's Fund - by post to MRC marked for the attention of Peter Blaseby.
