Welcome to Eccleshall Community First Responders

Eccleshall Community First Responders (CFR’s) are a group of 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. Our goal is to help save lives within our community by providing immediate life support to those in need.

Donate to Eccleshall Community First Responders

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”

On Friday 10th May we held our first “Musical Extravaganza” at Holy Trinity Church. We had a fantastic turnout and raised an amazing amount of money to help support Eccleshall CFR’s. It was an excellent night of music and entertainment. Thank you to everyone who participated or came along. Your support is very much appreciated!

Earlier in the year I had a couple from Green Park on one of my Defib/CPR awareness courses in Eccleshall library.
After the session I was saying that I was looking to place a community defib (CPAD) in the Green Lane/Green Park area and they said they would be happy to have it on the outside of their garage. Needless to say I cannot now find their contacts. Was it you or by chance are you willing to host one for us. It just hangs on the wall? It must be accessible 24/7 and does require mains power. The manufacturer of the box quotes the running costs as about £5 per year. If you were at that session or are willing to consider hosting a CPAD please message me for more information.

Following a fabulous show last year, today we received a brilliant donation from the Eccleshall Show Committee and Directors. Thank you to everyone involved with the organisation and running of the show. Keep up the good work. The money will be used to buy another community defibrillator to benefit the people of Eccleshall.
Heres hoping for another great show in 2019. See you in August guys!

Eccleshall Community First Responders

It has come to our attention here at UKPH-HQ that we have failed miserably in recognising the heroes who save lives for free - Community First Responders. They're all part of our big family and, thusly, we shall also begin to include them in our ritual piss taking after this heartfelt post.

To all CFRs, we thank you for helping save lives in your free time! (But please refrain from pressing any of the flashy buttons)
