  • The Kettlewell and Buckden Community First Responders
    The Kettlewell and Buckden Community First Responders (CFRs) teams jointly won the Yorkshire Ambulance Trust "Scheme of the Year" regional award for 2019 in recognition of the levels of on-duty coverage provided by small numbers of volunteers in their areas. CFRs are volunteers who are part of the Yorkshire Ambulance Service (YAS), providing advance attendance to serve local communities and assistance to the Service which is especially important in rural areas where ambulances may take some time to arrive. CFRs are only activated by the YAS after a 999 call has been made and an ambulance dispatched and are generally not called upon for accidents or injuries. If you would be prepared to assist the community by undergoing training and becoming a Responder please contact Doug (01756) 761703.
