There are over 35,000 people living in Woodley, at any time one of them could need our help – we can be there in minutes.
Comprising of 6 team members, the Woodley First Responder Group provide a rapid response to the residents of Woodley and the neighbouring areas in their time of need. The team are diverse and widely experienced with backgrounds in the fire service, ambulance service, care work and more. We run frequent CPR awareness courses in the local community and attend a number of events throughout the year.
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. 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.
