Two local residents have been successful in setting up a First Responder Scheme in Selborne, which also covers East Tisted, Newton Valence, Greatham, Liss, West and East Worldham and other surrounding areas as required. The team members have their own medical emergency kit bag containing oxygen, a defibrillator and other medical essentials. On receipt of an emergency call where a life threatening incident comes into the 999 system the ambulance control send the team in as the first response whilst the ambulance is on route. For more information please follow the link;
The team would like to thank everyone that has helped raise money to start the scheme and buy the kit, but they will have on going costs so donations are still welcome.
Please note that the team will only attend incidents as directed by 999 Ambulance control, so in the event of an emergency please call 999.
