FASTAID – Community First Responder Scheme for Birmingham and Solihull – needs the help of the people it helps protect – you.
The charity supplies volunteer Community First responders to the West Midlands Ambulance Service.
Because they are based locally, they are often the first on the scene in an emergency and administer life-saving treatment while an ambulance is on its way.
But because FastAid is a charity it – and its Community First Responders – need all the help they can get to ensure they provide the very best service.
Which is why the organisation has launched a brand new group – Friends of FastAid – to get as many people as possible involved in supporting the cause.
Commenting on the new Friends group, FastAid chair Liz Hobday said: “It’s about getting people that may not want to respond to emergencies to get involved in other ways.
“FastAid isn’t all about responding – there are lots of ways you can get involved.
“We need help with fund-raising, PR, events, training and lots of other non-operational roles.
“We need as much help as we can get and the amount of time you give is entirely flexible – it’s up to you.
“We really do need this help to keep us going, so if you fancy helping FastAid why not spare us a few hours here and there?
“You will be helping the communities we all live in and having a bit of fun at the same time.”
