Dengie First Responders
Burnham, Southminster and Mayland First Responders are a voluntary group who give up their spare time to respond to emergency calls in the local area in conjunction with the East of England Ambulance Service.
The First Responders are part of a National organisation where volunteers receive training by the Ambulance Service to provide emergency cover for life threatening situations such as heart attacks in their area until the ambulance crew can arrive.
Training is given in basic life support, resuscitation, administering oxygen and using a defibrillator.
Since their formation the First Responders have been credited with saving many lives in this area.
This task is especially important in rural areas where an ambulance will often take more than the guideline times to arrive which enables ambulance control to stabilise the situation with a first responder.
