My name is John and along with Ross, Conrad and Kate, I am a voluntary Community First Responder (CFRs) in Milford on Sea.


We are trained and deployed by South Central Ambulance Service to be able, calmly and efficiently, to deal with medical emergencies, providing life‐ saving aid to a paent in that crucial me before an ambulance arrives. We are trained to deliver life saving skills, such as the use of a defibrillator, basic airways management and oxygen therapy and CPR. Because we respond to emergencies in our immediate area, we can arrive quickly and start treatment earlier. We really


do help to save more lives.


We are acvely fundraising to enable each of us to have our own kit, which includes essenal equipment. Please see below on how to donate.


My first ever call out was to a suspected stroke vicm. He was feeling fine, but his wife had noced that for a minute or two he had seemed confused and, quite rightly, suspected he was having a TIA (mini stroke). I was able to monitor both pulse and oxygen levels unl the ambulance crew arrived.


Infants can't deal with overheang as well as adults and this can cause seizures. On responding to a call concerning a twelve month old child, I found a hot and crying baby being comforted by his mother. Whilst waing for the ambulance, I was able to cool him down, administer some oxygen and explain to his parents that although alarming to witness, it wasn't usually a serious problem.


Somemes the less dramac calls can be very rewarding. I was called out to an elderly paent who had fallen and although uninjured, was on the kitchen floor. Aer basic observaons I made them comfortable and we chaed over a cup of tea. Being alone on the floor, with what turned out to be a long wait for the ambulance, could have been very distressing and I was pleased to have helped.


We are happy to volunteer, but it would not be possible without the support we have received from the Parish Council, businesses, local sociees and many individuals in the village.


Thank you from Ross, Conrad, John and Kate.
