CAN YOU HELP STALHAM AND SMALLBURGH FIRST RESPONDERS??
We are trained and deployed by EEAST Ambulance service to attend life threatening 999 calls, when an ambulance has been deployed they will deploy us too as those vital minutes before the ambulance arrives count!
We are desperately trying to raise funds to update our current vehicle, to 4x4's which will enable the group to respond in the hard to reach areas of the Norfolk Broads and Coastline as well as the extreme weather conditions during Winter Months. At present our responders use their own vehicles and pay for their fuel out of their own pocket so having access to all weather vehicles will allow greater coverage of our area which reaches as far as Hemsby, North Walsham, Upton, Wroxham, Bacton and everything inbetween, often working hand in hand supporting other groups as our areas cross over and always happily offering support out of area if needed.
So far January to May 2018 we have covered 3915 hours 261 life threatening emergencies and done 2181 miles in our personal vehicles.
We are volunteers so attending these calls are mostly at our own cost, our kit and uniform are funded by our ability to raise funds and by our community.
We'd love to hear from anyone who can help this challenge or even better, and cheekier, donate a sponsored vehicle - see the link below. If you can support/help Stalham and Smallburgh First Responders please do drop us a line at email@example.com or PM us - thank you for reading.
