Could you save a life?

For every 1000 people in your area one person will die of a heart attack this year.  Less than 5% will survive without resuscitation and defibrillation in the first 8 minutes.  A First Responder scheme can change this statistic!

The Ambulance Service is aware that it cannot cover the whole of Lincolnshire within the 8 minute window.  In order to give everybody in the county a fighting chance, L.I.V.E.S., with the Ambulance Service have launched the First Responder Scheme.

Ruskington, a village comparable to Metheringham, has had a First Responder Scheme operating since August 2000 and to date has had 31 call-outs.  This fact alone is enough to show the importance of the service.  I am convinced Metheringham and Dunston villagers will wholeheartedly support the initiative by either volunteering to be First Responders or help by donating to this valuable cause.  This service obviously needs financing, so please give generously  to your local scheme.

In Metheringham and Dunston, we are looking for funraising helpers and also responders. Full training will be given.

Contact : Coordinator Jenny Hutchinson 01526 321627 for further details.
