We are incredibly fortunate to live in a community minded area who fund and support our volunteer work – please continue to help us.
Newport Pagnell and Olney CFR
Newport Pagnell & Olney Community First Responders are dedicated, trained volunteers who work under the direction of the South Central Ambulance Service responding to emergencies in the area where they live or work. The team are all volunteers who log on as and when they can. Because they live locally they often arrive minutes before the ambulance and can start life-saving medical treatment earlier.
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. We would particularly like to thank:
- Brian Currie www.briancurrie.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.
South Central Ambulance Charity is the nominated charity for the Newport Pagnell Singers, and CFRS from the area will be fundraising at their main Christmas Concert on December 10th at Newport Pagnell Parish Church.Tickets for this event are available from http://newportpagnellsingers.co.uk/ or by calling Pat on 07904 299484.
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.
