About Us

Who are we?

After completing a four day training course provided by EMAS, our responders will volunteer to work on a rota system in support of the ambulance service, responding to high priority 999 calls potentially anywhere in the East Midlands. By acting as an additional resource to the ambulance service, they will reduce the time members of the public have to wait for emergency intervention when every minute counts, as well as supplementing their own experience levels that will benefit the NHS in the future.


We already have over sixty students from various healthcare courses and beyond responding in our communities.
