This is the Just Giving page for the Petersfield Community First Responder scheme. We are a group of volunteers who donate our time to South Central Ambulance Charity to respond to life-threarening 999 calls for South Central Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust.
We rely on donations from the community to allow us to respond to calls and make our life saving interventions whilst awaiting the arrival of an Ambulance. Without the support and care of the local community we wouldn't be able to operate our Scheme.
To put our appeal in to perspective, below are some of the approximate costs incurred by running our responder team which consists currently, of four volunteers and two kits. All of these items are just a few of the vital life saving devices and equipment that we carry when responding to a 999 call;
Responder kit bag (including Automated External Defibrillator or AED) - £2,000
Replacement AED battery - £180
Communications equipment - £20pcm
Replacement AED - £1,000
Replacement paediatric AED pads - £20 per set
We really are grateful for any donations we receive to help secure our future for the next 12-months. Thank you x
