Please help support Ropley Community First Responders, contact us below if you would like to volunteer or if you would like to make a donation. We rely 100% on donations to our charity to fund this vital work.
Ropley Community First Responders are volunteers dispatched by the ambulance service to attend life threatening emergencies in Ropley and surrounding villages. The potential for us to arrive on scene before an ambulance, especially being a rural area, is vital in providing immediate life-saving treatment. In case of cardiac arrest, for every minute that passes without CPR and defibrillation, a patient’s chances of survival decreases by 14%.
We help to save lives.
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:
- Ropley Parish Council
- Hampshire County Council
- East Hants District Council
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.
