12-02-17 Carradale First Responders
Scottish ambulance service.
Congratulations to the following who all passed their four days of Scottish Ambulance First Responder Training: Malcolm Elder, Fiona Lavery-Jones, Steve Redwood, Gregor Semple, Kenny Semple, Robert Strang, Caroline Tachauer and Kate Trott.
The group have purchased two defibrillators as a result of a grant application to East Kintyre Windfarm Trust and are very grateful to the Trust for this. Further equipment and protective clothing will be supplied by Scottish Ambulance.
Once fully equipped the First Responders will be on a double rota and attend medical emergencies (when contacted by the SAS) while the ambulance is on its way.
Each month the First Responders will undergo ongoing training at The Fire Station with the help and support of our local paramedic Lorna Campbell. The group will fundraise for training equipment and Fiona has already set the ball rolling by taking part in the Walk 1000 Miles in 2017 challenge - all donations welcome.
