Community First Responders
Community First Responders (CFR) are volunteers who are trained by the East of England Ambulance Service to attend certain types of medical based emergency calls in the area where they either live or work. The aim of a CFR is to reach a potential life threatening 999 emergency call in the first vital minutes before the ambulance crew arrives.
Their role is to help stabilise the patient and provide the appropriate care and treatment until the more highly skilled ambulance crew arrives on scene to take over the more advanced care. The short time they are with the patient could potentially save a life.
