Wednesday 28th December 2016 – 12.00noon – Claire Brown.

It is with deepest sadness that West Midlands Ambulance Service has learnt of the sad passing of Community First Responder Jon Whitehouse. Jon was a volunteer CFR with FastAid Black Country and responded to 999 calls in his local area on behalf of West Midlands Ambulance Service.

He sadly died in a road traffic collision on the A454 Bridgnorth Road in Shipley on Boxing Day (26th December). In March, Jon received a Chief Officers Commendation at the Trust’s awards ceremony for his excellent CFR work and was an extremely enthusiastic member of the team who will be sadly missed. Our thoughts go to his family and friends at this sad time.
