Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.

Hullbridge Community First Responders (CFRs) are volunteers who have been trained to respond to local emergency calls on behalf of East of England ambulance service. We are deployed at the same time as a rapid response vehicle or a doubled staffed ambulance to attend "immediate life-threatening" calls and provide basic life-saving clinical care to the patient in those vital first few minutes before the arrival of the ambulance . We are also a very welcomed second pair of hands to an ambulance staff when they arrive. Not only do we cover our beautiful village but we also cover the Rayleigh area when they are unavailable or already on another call.

In order to carry out this service, we require a kit containing all the necessary equipment. We are looking to expand our volunteering hours with an additional response kit. Being able to be cover more hours and in turn respond to more calls or multiple calls.
