Eastbourne Community First Responders

    What is a Community First Responder?

    We are volunteers trained and dispatched by the South East Coast Ambulance Service to provide a First Response to 999 emergency calls that are close to where we live or work. The fact that we can be there quickly can be lifesaving. Our task is to manage the situation until the Paramedics arrive and then we form part of the team under their direction.


    Being a Responder is a very rewarding experience.

    Training for the Community

    We provide continuous training for our team of First Responders and they, in turn, can arrange Life Saving Skills training for our local community.   More information about what this training is and how you, your club or your business can benefit from this can be found using the link below - or contact us at info@eastbourneresponders.com

    Donating & Fundraising

    It is always difficult for Responders to find time to assist with fundraising events because of their duty commitments. If you feel able to assist at such events, we would be delighted to welcome you.

    Most would assume that our equipment would be provided by the Ambulance Service. but our equipment and running costs are paid for through our fundraising efforts, public donations, grants or support from local companies. We can only do the things we do through people like you.

    For information please email our Treasurer - treasurer@eastbourneresponders.com
