Get involved

There are a number of ways you can get involved with our ambulance service:

Become a community first responder (CFR)

CFR with a patientA community first responder is a volunteer who is trained by the ambulance service to attend emergency calls in the area where they live or work. Their aim is to reach a potential life-threatening emergency in the first vital minutes before the ambulance crew arrives. 

Be the heart of your community and find out more about the community first responder scheme and how you can become one


Attend events or visit our public engagement stand

We attend a number of events throughout the year where you can find out about our work and share your experience of the service with us. Find out where you can meet us this year by viewing our forthcoming events here.


Join our Trust User Group (TUG)

This an independent group of volunteers from around the region who help us identify ways of improving services and support the Trust with a range of activities. 


Become an ambulance ambassador

Ambulance ambassadors are volunteers who can go out into their communities and talk about the Trust. They can give an accurate and up-to-date picture of how we are performing and enable us to engage with communities we may not usually engage with.



Children’s education materials

Our children’s educational materials aim to increase understanding of our work, what happens when people dial 999 and what they should do in a medical emergency.  View our childrens educational booklets to download here.  In 2016, we will continue to run our drawing competition for children within the area to take part in.
