THE LONACH AREA FIRST RESPONDER SCHEME

 

In association with the Scottish Ambulance Service

 

MORE RESPONDERS NEEDED

 

Since The Lonach Area First Responder Scheme went live in May 2006, we have attended 12 incidents where we were able to provide primary care until the arrival of the ambulance service.

 

The scheme currently has 17 first responders providing out of hours cover for the community from 6.30pm 8.00am weekdays and 24 hour cover at weekends and bank holidays. To maintain this cover we need more people to come forward. If you can spare one night a week or a few hours at weekends, it would make a big difference to the cover we can provide. The more responders we have the better. We especially need more people from the Glenkindie, Towie and Kildrummy areas.

If you are 18-65, reasonably fit, hold a current full driving licence and would like to help provide this important service to our communities please contact Trevor Jones on the number below.

The first responders hold regular training evenings on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month at the Lonach Hall from 7.30pm 9.00pm.
