COMMUNITY RESPONDERS KITTED OUT WITH COATS

Northwich Community First Responders have been enjoying a warmer winter after Redrow came to the aid of volunteers.

 

The group successfully applied to the homebuilder’s Hartford Community Fund for help to buy six coats to keep volunteers warm and dry when responding to emergency calls.

 

Team leader Chris Railton explained: “We’re a local group of volunteers who are trained and dispatched by the ambulance service to calls within our community for the highest priority of patients, such as cardiac and respiratory arrests as well as unconscious people. A lot of our calls are to people outside and by keeping our volunteers warm and dry it will enable them to remain on duty longer, thereby providing emergency cover to the community over a longer period.

 

“During the pandemic our ambulance service is under even more pressure than ever so having local people based within the community ready to respond to emergency calls offers an essential lifeline to some of the most critically ill patients.”

 

The team of volunteers covers the Hartford and Northwich area including Redrow’s Weaver Park and Water’s Reach developments, in Hartford.

 

The donation of almost £500 for the new jackets was part of the latest £5,000 voluntary fund offered by the homebuilder to support the neighbourhood. In recent years, Redrow has gifted more than £25,000 to the Hartford area through community funds, which are in addition to its obligations as part of the planning process.

 

Redrow area sales manager Caroline Thompson-Jones said: “The community responders provide fantastic support to our emergency services. When we heard that they were in need of jackets to keep them warm while they’re tending to patients we were eager to help.”
