Bromley Community First Responders (CFRs) presented a defibrillator to Oakland’s Primary Academy in Biggin HIll last week.

The defibrillator was awarded to London Ambulance staff Andrew Larby and Rachel Love after they responded to a cardiac arrest off-duty during a training session and successfully resuscitated the patient, who has since been discharged.

Teaching staff were taught CPR and use of the defibrillator by a London Ambulance Service community resuscitation training officer, while Year 6 pupils were taught CPR by CFRs Tony and Rob.

CFRs are volunteers trained to attend emergency calls received by the ambulance service and provide care until the ambulance arrives.

They respond to high priority calls in their local area dispatched the same time as the emergency services.

The CFR scheme is currently recruiting.

No first aid experience is necessary, but two years driving experience as well as access to a car is required.

Those interested should email andrew.larby@londonambulance.nhs.uk or search Bromley Community First Responders on Facebook or visit www.londonambulance.nhs.uk for more information.
