The Anglesey First Response Scheme was set up in March 2004 and is supported by theWelsh Ambulance Services NHS Trust
The aim of the scheme is to assist the Ambulance service when there is a possible delay in reaching a casualty.
When a 999 call is made to Ambulance Control, they will always dispatch the first and nearest available ambulance; as an adjunct to this service they could also ask the assistance of a nearby First Responder.
The aim of the scheme is to provide assistance in the form of Oxygen Therapy or defibrillation to a casualty with breathing difficulties or possibly with cardiac Arrest.
The Objective of the Anglesey First Response scheme is to have a selection of teams (each with approximately ten volunteers) to be located in such areas as Holyhead, Amlwch, Beaumaris, Llangefni and Malltraeth etc.
It is also envisaged that, in addition to the main teams, we would have satellite teams working to expand the area of the Main team. These for example would be like Valley working with Holyhead to cover Holy Island, Trearddur Bay and Four Mile Bridge, and Llandonna working with Beaumaris etc.
We are looking for volunteers within these areas and, if you think you could help us, either by volunteering or fund raising then please call the local Coordinator or email below
