First Responders Need Help

Parwich Community First Responders need your help! Many of you will know we have a volunteer team of Community First Responders and we help people in emergencies by getting to them in advance of the professional ambulance crews, which can save lives. To keep us on top of our game, regular training sessions are important, as the ability to practice CPR is crucial.

We’re trying to raise funds from a scheme run by Calor Gas Ltd, which is based on the number of votes received, to buy a new training mannequin and are competing with other worthy causes to get our share of what’s available.

So, we need to have the most votes to get to the funds.

If you’d like to support our appeal, please can you click through on the link below and add your 10 votes that you’ll be allocated – it’d be a great help and hugely appreciated by the Parwich First Responder team. The deadline is Monday 17th June, so please don’t delay.

If you’d like to know more about what the Parwich First Responders do, or have any questions about the life-saving defribulator located at The Sycamore pub, e.g. how to access it, then please call Martin on 390529, who’d be happy to explain it to you.

First Responders Wanted

We have just had our AGM where we discussed recruitment. The number of active members remains small so being able to cover the rota is a huge problem. More volunteers could make such a difference.

If you are over 18years, no upper age limit,  and have an interest in becoming a volunteer and want to find out more why not come to the next training session.  There you can meet the existing First Responders, watch a training session and get a general idea of what is involved. You will be made very welcome.

Please contact Martin 529 or Sue 334 for more details on becoming involved.

First Responders

 A big thank you to those who braved the awful weather this evening to learn how to use the static defibrillator.  I think everyone agreed that John’s training was clear and reassuring, with the emphasis on just doing something, even if  it might not be textbook correct. We even raised £32 for the Air Ambulance in the process.

Training for All

Just a quick reminder about the training session at the Memorial Hall. It is open to everybody and we hope that lots of people will pop along for the session. It should last about an hour and a half, finishing with free refreshments.

So whether you feel that your life saving skills are rusty or if you think that you would have no idea what to do in the case of a heart attack please come and hear John Whittaker from East Midlands Ambulance Service guide us all through what you should do.
We have decided to hold a raffle in aid of the Air Ambulance during the evening. Parwich First Responders look forward to seeing you on Thursday at 7.30. Sue H

Defibrillator Training

Training on how to use the Static Defibrillator, which is located on the wall of the Sycamore Inn, Parwich, will take place in the Parwich Memorial Hall, 7:30pm, Thursday 20 September 2018.

It is useful to have as many people as possible trained to use defibrillators as they can be found in so many locations these days, opening up the potential to save more lives.

You do not need to be a First Responder (FPOS) to undertake the training, but anyone who would like to become one are more than welcome to.

More details will follow closer to the date about what the training will involve, but just wanted to get the date in peoples’ diaries.
