Frequently asked questions

Whilst our first responders receive training by NIAS and support them at calls, all of the team are unpaid volunteers (who live or work in the local area) and the scheme is not governed, nor financed, by NIAS. We’d like to thank all members of the public who support us and allow us to continue to provide the service.

Training to become a CFR is delivered by the ‘Community Resuscitation Team’ within NIAS.  After a two-day initial  training programme, CFRs can be signposted to relevant additional courses. Our volunteers then undergo frequent refresher training to ensure we can deliver the best care possible to the communities we support.

In line with NIAS’s guidelines, “CFRs are not knowingly alerted to:

  • calls where the patient is under 12 yo;
  • trauma-related incidents (e.g. RTCs);
  • calls that present possible hazards, such as those involving alcohol, drugs or potential violence;
  • calls where the patient is suffering from mental health issues.”

CFRs use their own vehicles to respond to emergency callouts and we must follow the Rules of the Road with no exemptions. Therefore, we never use blue lights or audible warning devices when responding.
