Heartstart and Knutsford’s First Responders

CPR Training

The aim of  Heartstart and Knutsford’s First Responders 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 within a 5 mile radius of Knutsford, the duty First Responder is also advised of the call and is asked to attend.

They are currently advertising for additional people to fill vacancies within the team.  The charitable trust provides CPR training as well as running a first responder team which works with and is trained by the North West Ambulance Service.

They are looking for:

  • a trust secretary
  • funding team members and
  • first responders.
