The University of Nottingham Community First Responders operate a student led Community First Responder scheme from two dispatch points in Nottingham and Derby. We respond alongside the East Midlands Ambulance Service to high priority 999 calls and hope to be able to reach members of our community with emergency lifesaving equipment and knowledge when it is needed most.
All of our volunteers are students at the University of Nottingham, and are proud to give up their time to be a part of this initiative.
Many of our volunteers are studying healthcare related courses at University, however, we pride ourselves on not restricting our recruitment to just healthcare students. Regardless of their course and future career, we hope the experiences of the work our responders perform will complement their future development.
