Wednesday 27th November 2013 – 11.45am – Chris Kowalik.
As the Christmas lights are switched on in one north Shropshire town this Saturday, volunteer lifesavers will be enlightening visitors about their work.
North Shropshire Community First Responders (a registered charity – no. 1136523) will be in Whitchurch hoping to recruit new volunteers.
The scheme consists of everyday members of the public trained by West Midlands Ambulance Service to a nationally recognised standard in a variety of lifesaving techniques including the use of a defibrillator. They could be sent by the ambulance service’s control room to medical emergencies in their area while an ambulance is on its way.
North Shropshire Community First Responders covers all areas of the north of the county including Whitchurch, Market Drayton, Wem, Newport, Hinstock and Shawbury.
Co-Ordinator Gerry Evans said: “We will have a market stall at the top of the High Street from 10am until 6pm. Come and meet us!”
