Become a Community First Responder

Thank you for your interest in becoming a volunteer CFR with SCAS. Our department has recently undergone a restructure and we are currently reviewing our training packages

As a result of this we have implemented a recruitment freeze in February 2018 which means that we are not currently taking applications for new volunteers and this will remain in place until July 2018.

If you are still interested in July, we would encourage you to contact us again and we can look to progress your application.

Thank you for your interest and we look forward to hearing from you in July.

What does a Community First Responder do?

We have Community First Responder (CFR) Schemes across Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Hampshire and Oxfordshire, in both urban and rural areas. Our CFRs are trained to deliver life-saving skills such as the use of an automated external defibrillator (AED), basic airway management and oxygen therapy, and cardiopulmonary resuscitation, or CPR – and we always need new recruits.

Because CFRs only respond to emergencies in the area where they live or work, they can arrive at the scene shortly before an ambulance gets there. By being able to start life-saving medical treatment earlier, CFRs really do help save more lives.
