Local CFRs

Community First Responders (CFRs)

A few of our HeartStart Instructors at one of the many sessions in Kendal College.

We are all volunteers for North West Ambulance Service (NWAS).

We are there in our local communites, closer to you, for a quicker ‘first response’… to look after you until an ambulance arrives.

There’s a link at the bottom of this site to the NWAS CFR website – go and have a look, maybe you’d like to apply to join us?

Teams generally cover an area but many of us have pagers that know where we are and can send us to incidents around us if we choose.
