Thank you for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
I am raising money for FLEET, to place defibrillators on frontline police cars in Cornwall.
As a Lead Paramedic based in Conrwall, I have witnessed first hand the benefits from the training and equipment provided by FLEET to the local community and I set myself the challenge of running the London Marathon to continue their work. Despite never before running a Marathon or even a half Marathon it was a real challenge but reflects on a personal level how important this charity is to saving lives in the local community. Thank you to all those who have donated money to this fantastic cause. I will continue to fundraise throughout the Summer in attempt to meet my goal.
With over 14m visitors to Cornwall each year the local Emergency Services are challenged to provide the best possible care despite congested remote locations often delaying response times and causing lengthy transport times to hospital.
Thanks to the work of FLEET and the kind donations received from the people of Cornwall and beyond, remote areas are equipped with defibrillators and trained volunteers. Local Emergency Services are given the latest training and are supplied with the latest lifesaving equipment to give the best possible means of stabilising and saving lives.
Since its’ inception the aim of FLEET has widened and the charity now provides equipment to all the services that give emergency medical support to the public. FLEET equipment is in constant use on
- All the county’s emergency ambulances
- Emergency response motorbikes and cars
- Cornwall County Fire Engines
- Cornish HM Coastguard teams
- Cornish RNLI Lifeboats
- Cornwall’s Air Ambulance
