Community First Responders train with HEMS paramedics

Earlier this month, HEMS paramedics, Caroline Rose and Ben Macauley welcomed a number of the wonderful volunteers from SECAmb and Horsham Community First Responder teams to our Redhill base for an airway management training session.

CFRs are members of the community who are trained to respond to emergency calls in conjunction with SECAMB. As they respond in the local areas where they live and work they are able to attend the scene of an emergency within a few minutes, and often before the emergency service arrives. They are able to offer life-saving first aid further increasing the patient’s chances of survival.
