Giving time to serve the people of Ringwood is a most rewarding experience.

Denis Hann – Group Co-ordinator

Ringwood CFR

Ringwood Community First Responders are all unpaid volunteers, who serve the community by attending 999 emergency medical calls and providing basic life support until the arrival of the ambulance. Trained and despatched by the ambulance service, their motivation to help others at a time of medical emergency comes from within. They operate in Ringwood and the surrounding areas.

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.

Supporters

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:

 

If you live locally, or run a local business, and could help us with our fundraising we would love to hear from you.

Events

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.
