Welcome to Eccleshall Community First Responders

Eccleshall Community First Responders (CFR’s) are volunteers trained by West Midlands Ambulance to a nationally recognised level and provide life saving treatment to people in their local communities. We respond to 999 calls in the local area and give medical aid until the Ambulance Service arrive on scene.

We receive no funding from central sources and rely entirely on donations and fund raising in order to provide the service to our communities. The volunteer responders give their time for operations and training freely. The money that we need for day to day running costs as well as the purchase of equipment, uniforms and a vehicle has to be raised through fundraising events or public or private donations.

Eccleshall CFR's awarded the Queens Award for Voluntary Service

On the 2nd June 2017, Eccleshall CFR’s were awarded the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service. 

The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service is the highest award given to local volunteer groups across the UK to recognise outstanding work done in their own communities. It was created in 2002 to celebrate the anniversary of The Queen’s coronation.

This award is the equivalent of the MBE for voluntary groups and has been awarded for their work in “Providing emergency medical aid, training and lifesaving equipment to those living and working in the local community”

A big thanks to all those people who came to our presentation evening last night. You all made it a brilliant night. It was great to meet up with so many supporters, "service users", and generally interested people.
A particular thanks to Neale and his team at the Kings Arms. Every one commented on the buffet being great. Also to Caroline Burley for doing the photographs (hope to have some on here soon) and Will Hack of Inspire Generation for the loan of the PA system. It all came together to make a brilliant night.
