Community First Responders

The Community First Responder (CFR) scheme is a life-saving partnership between Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust (YAS) and local communities.

As authorised volunteers for YAS, Community First Responders form teams located in communities across Yorkshire as part of a wider initiative which aims to help reduce the number of pre-hospital deaths in Yorkshire.

New recruits will join hundreds of volunteers living in local communities across the region who are trained to provide life-saving treatment to residents in their area in the vital first minutes of an emergency until our ambulance clinicians arrive.

YAS is committed to providing the high quality services to and care to all those living in, or passing through, Yorkshire and this initiative undoubtedly helps to achieve this.

Please note we are not currently recruiting CFRs in the following area's of Sheffield -

Anston, Beighton, Dinnington, Dore, Fulwood, Gleadless, Grenoside, Handsworth, Harthill, High Green, Hillsborough, Kiveton, Lodgemoor, Maythorn, Penistone, Sheffield 5, Sothall, Stocksbridge, Totley, Walkley, Waterthorpe, Wincobank, Woodseats.
