CFR Members

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.

The Community Resilience Team

Community First Responders come from all different walks of life and volunteer for many different reasons. Anyone who wants to help their community can become a CFR. No previous medical experience or training is necessary although you will need a caring attitude and be able to cope with potentially distressing situations.

You need to:

  • be aged 18 or older
  • hold a valid, full UK driving licence with no more than three penalty points
  • have access to a car
  • be prepared to undertake a Disclosure and Barring Service check
  • be prepared to undertake occupational health screening
  • be prepared to take our CFR course.

You will be asked to attend a welcome evening and introduction to Yorkshire Ambulance Service. We will then arrange training in your local area.
