Community First Responders set up by North West Ambulance Service as first to respond to a medical emergency when an Ambulance has been dispatched. Coniston First Responders were formed in 2004 and are all volunteers undertaking monthly training and annual assessments to ensure competency and skills are kept up to date. We have three static responder bags situated at strategic locations within the village and have five roving bags held at Responder homes. Average time from activation to arrival is 3 minutes. We respond 24 hours a day in all weather conditions. All equipment, pagers and room hire for meetings are paid for by donations and grants received from local organisations.
