Emma joins CFRs

Community First Responders (CFRs) in Much Wenlock have been boosted by the arrival of a new member of the team.

Paramedic Emma, who has a day job working for the emergency services in Birmingham, has moved with her family to live just outside Much Wenlock and is now volunteering her spare time to join long-serving Wenlock CFR Robin on his shifts. She is also one of the town’s ‘defib volunteers’ ready to deliver lifesaving cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and use the town’s defibrillator.

“Emma is brilliant,” says Robin. “Her experience as a front-line paramedic means she’s able to bring her experience to help patients we attend on 999 calls who are critically ill or in cardiac arrest. She’s given our scheme such a boost and the whole town has welcomed her.”
