WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO 

Community Responders are volunteers who give their time freely to help save lives in their community. They are trained by Hampshire Ambulance Service in basic life support, the use of Automatic External Defibrillators (AEDs) and the treatment and control of a wide range of potentially life threatening conditions.

Community Responders are able to support people in the first few minutes following a heart attack or other life threating event.

HOW WE MAKE A DIFFERENCE

Community Responders are dispatched by the Ambulance Communications Centre to emercency incidents in their community, but not road traffic accidents or injuries caused through violence. They operate within small areas and can therefore often be at the patient's side in under 5 minutes providing both vital clinical care and reassurance.

In many cases, their intervention can mean the difference between life and death.

In cases of cardiac arrest, a patients heart stops beating effectively. Without defibrillation their chances of survival decreases by 10% for every minute that goes by. Community Responders are trained to use AED's and can therefore provide this vital intervention.
