The Knutsford First Responders team operates under the supervision of the North West Ambulance Service (NWAS). We attend emergency calls in and around the Knutsford area and administer life saving support to patients whilst awaiting the arrival of an ambulance.
We have a dedicated and friendly team who are committed to making a difference to the local community. In May 2009 NWAS gave us the opportunity to extend our training to enable us to respond at an enhanced level. We want to improve our service with more volunteers operating at that enhanced level.
We use NWAS procedures for recruitment and selection. Health checks, criminal records bureau checks and driving licence checks are carried out. Following interview and acceptance a full training programme is delivered by NWAS.
If anyone is interested in becoming a Knutsford First Responder, or requires more information, please contact us directly.
