Welcome to the website of Fleet & Church Crookham Community First Responder scheme!

For over ten years, we've been volunteering within the local community, by responding to 999 calls in the local area, on behalf of the ambulance service. In addition, we help to manage over fifty public access defibrillator sites, ensuring that our most unwell patients get life saving treatment even quicker. We also provide free training in CPR and defibrillator use, all with the aim of protecting and preserving life in the Fleet area.

During COVID19 we've continued to work together with South East Coast Ambulance Service. Responders have undergone additional training, and are working to the same operating procedures as our ambulance colleagues. They have also been issued with PPE and extra uniform, to work within the national infection prevention and control guidelines.

We continue to maintain PAD sites, and are still contactable for enquiries on our sites and their maintenance. Face to face meetings and training have been suspended for the foreseeable future.

Update 24/12/2021: We are receiving a high number of enquiries by email around training and public access defibrillators. Please be aware that we are all volunteers, including active ambulance staff. The NHS is currently under unprecedented demand, with our call volume being the highest in the trust's history. Whilst we endeavour to respond quickly, this isn't always possible at the moment. We thank for your patience.
