Our Hero Next Door campaign aims to recruit community first responders (CFRs) all across the North West.
CFRs are ordinary people who do extraordinary things as volunteers for the ambulance service. They find the time to save the lives of their neighbours whilst going about their normal routines.
The idea of the campaign is to show people that volunteers can go about their everyday lives and have no other healthcare connection but still find time to be a hero!
CFRs can be called upon to attend incidents such as cardiac arrest as well as other emergency situations, so that they can start lifesaving treatment as quickly as possible before the ambulance gets there.
Only required to commit a few hours per week, a CFR could be anyone over the age of 18 and doesn’t require any previous training.
