    Want to make a real difference? Over 18? Full UK driving licence? We are actively seeking new volunteers to train as Community First Responders in the Sevenoaks Area.

    CFRs are volunteers, trained by the ambulance service to respond to emergency calls through the 999 system. The primary role of a CFR is to provide life-saving emergency treatment in their local area. We carry medical equipment benefit patients whilst waiting for an ambulance. Sevenoaks CFRs was set up 9 years ago to provide a team throughout Sevenoaks district area.

    Secondary to our primary activities, we provide free Public Training on CPR, First Aid and AED usage to members of the public, groups and societies in the Sevenoaks District Area.

    You can sign on to be on standby and then go about your normal daily lives. We ask for a minimum 4 hours a week on standby, but if you can give more, even better! Ideally you will have access to your own vehicle, but we may be able to arrange for you to use one of our response vehicles if you are able to commit enough hours.
    You will also be expected to attend a team meeting one evening a month.

    Full training is given ( 5 days in your first year)

    We are also looking for fundraisers to help with our collections and events.

    If you think you can help us then get in touch and come and meet the team. Full details of our activities are available on our website http://www.sevenoakscfrs.org Contact us @ info@sevenoakscfrs.org or @sevenoakscfr on twitter
