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: Due to the current situation and taking the advice from government and management within Yorkshire Ambulance Service we are no longer recruiting Community First Responders at this time.

At the moment we have no time scale of when recruitment will re-open so please keep checking our Facebook page and this website for updates.

Thank you for your understanding.
