Become a Community First Responder

The North East Ambulance Service (NEAS) is looking for community first responders (CFRs) in our area to volunteer their time, supporting patients within their own community.

CFRs are deployed to incidents within their community, at the same time as an ambulance is dispatched, to provide vital life-saving care and support, or simply a reassuring face, in the crucial minutes between a 999 call being made and the arrival of the crew.

They will be asked to attend medical emergencies such as heart attack, stroke, breathing difficulties, and cardiac arrests, (where someone’s heart has stopped beating).
Full training will be provided by NEAS.
