We live in a vibrant ever expanding town, and we can only do what we do within the community because of your support.
Bracknell Community First Responders are local unpaid volunteers, trained and dispatched by the ambulance service to attend serious medical emergencies, where life is at risk. We carry Oxygen and a Defibrillator as well as other medical equipment and get to the patient very quickly, offering basic life saving care until the ambulance arrives. We attend calls in the local area usually within an 8 minute drive from our home position.
What we do
We provide basic life support care until the arrival of the ambulance. We carry oxygen and a defibrillator as well as other medical equipment and pain relief. We can be with a patient very quickly – providing emergency care in the critical time before the ambulance arrives.
We are very grateful to all those who have donated money, time and energy to the local CFR scheme for this community, and in particular would like to thank:
- Afton Chemicals www.aftonchemical.com
- Datanet Installation Services UK Limited www.datanetuk.com
- Printernet Limited www.printernet.co.uk
If you live locally, or run a local business and could help us with our fundraising we would love to hear from you.
Some CFRs run events where you can ‘meet the team’.
This area will display all events that the South Central Ambulance Charity are aware of.
CFRs often get asked to attend events such as a village fete or fair in order to demonstrate vital life saving skills and collect on behalf of our charity.
If you are organising an event and would like us to attend, please email us.
Some schemes have volunteers who are qualified to provide first aid cover at local events. To find out if we can do this for you please email us.
