CFR Members

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.
