Community First Responders wanted for Market Weighton scheme

VOLUNTEERS are wanted to join a Community First Responder (CFR) scheme in the Market Weighton area.

CFR’s are volunteers who provide immediate life-saving care to members of their local communities in an emergency medical situation, such as a heart attack, collapse or breathing difficulties, in the vital minutes before the ambulance arrives.

Residents in the local area are invited to a meeting at 7pm on Monday 6 August at The Bowls Club, Beverley Road, Market Weighton, to find out more about the scheme and how they can get involved.

See next week’s Post (2 August) for the full story.
