Knutsford Community First Responders (CFRs)
The Knutsford Community First Responder team is a group of volunteers who are trained by and work with the North West Ambulance Service.
Our aim is to preserve life and promote recovery in an emergency situation, before the ambulance arrives. Founded in 2002, the team works in conjunction with the ambulance service to provide a rapid response to emergency situations. When a member of the public dials for an ambulance in the Knutsford area, the Duty First Responder is also advised of the call and is asked to attend.
Typically we respond to about 300 calls a year. Not only do we administer emergency first aid but our presence provides reassurance and takes some of the strain off both the casualty and their relatives.
