#016 Emergency First Responders

Welcome to the Inside Yorkshire Podcast, a podcast full of stories and tales from the people of Yorkshire. In todays episode Susan talks to Josie Kyme about how the two dales first responder team is important to life in the community.

Key Takeaways:

  • It can take an ambulance 20 mins to reach villages up in the dales so a first responder living locally can therefore be a vital resource
  • Volunteers have local knowledge and are trained to respond quickly in times of emergency
  • One responder had her life saved by her husband whilst she was on duty
  • The training that responders receive is a valuable life skill
  • At present there are 11 active responders in the team and they respond singly or in pairs
  • New responders are always needed
