It was another well attended virtual Club Zoom meeting last Wednesday when we were entertained by Colin McFarlane talking to us about Community First Responders of which he is a member working with the South East Coast Ambulance Service. Colin made some interesting points and offered some good advice when confronted with a potentially life changing situation.

Personally, I wasn’t aware that the organisation was quite so large and from recent accounts in the press it will soon massively increase in size as they look to take on another 60,000 volunteers thanks to £7 million pounds worth of funding raised by Capt. Tom Moore. They look like becoming a major addition to the emergency services.
