Best Case Scenarios sponsor the Blackburn and Darwen First Responder Group, operated by the North West Ambulance Service.
Community First Responders are volunteers who give their time freely to help save lives in their community. Responders are everyday members of the general public who are trained in the use of Automated External Defibrillators and the treatment and control of a wide range of potentially life threatening conditions.
In cases of heart attack it has been identified that early intervention can result in a significant improvement in prognosis. First Responders provide support to the regular Ambulance Service by attending serious and life threatening 999 calls in and around the community to provide the earliest possible intervention for patients in the first few minutes until the arrival of an Ambulance.
