Rosehall First Responders respond to medical emergencies in their area while the ambulance is on its way.
The volunteers have been trained in the use of automatic external defibrillators, oxygen therapy and a wide range of emergency skills, including how to assist in life threatening situations such as heart or asthma attacks. First Responders can give vital emergency care to patients in the period between the 999 call being made and the ambulance arriving. Early access, early resuscitation, early defibrillation and early advanced life support care greatly increases the survival rate of cardiac arrest patients and the Rosehall team hope to make a difference to the lives of people living, working and visiting the area.
First Responders are trained by the Scottish Ambulance Service and meet regularly for continued training and development.
