A new lifesaving 4×4 vehicle has been launched!

Arrive Alive funds vital lifesaving vehicles and equipment for Community First Responder groups (CFR’s) who attend life-threatening medical emergencies. CFR’s are trained volunteers who are dispatched via a 999 call, they can reach a medical emergency in those vital seconds/minutes prior to a road or air ambulance due to being directly based within the heart of the community.

Despite the impact of COVID-19 which has drastically impacted Arrive Alive’s charitable income due to the cancellation of events and supermarket bucket collections. A new voluntary operated lifesaving vehicle has been launched, the vehicle will be operated by Featherstone & District Community First Responders.

At present Arrive Alive provides numerous pieces of lifesaving vehicles and equipment to various Community First Responder (CFR’s) groups who operate within the West Midlands. CFR’s are trained by West Midlands Ambulance Service and are volunteers who can help to save lives.

The new 4×4 vehicle will be used to attend the most immediate threat to life medical emergencies and will be dispatched following a 999 call.

Debbie Roscoe from Arrive Alive said:

“To be able to support the community with additional medical resources during a pandemic is fantastic. However, none of this would be possible without our amazing supporters. I would like to pass on a massive thank you from the Arrive Alive team to every individual who has supported Arrive Alive, it is greatly appreciated. Additional vehicles and equipment are urgently needed to enable Arrive Alive to support the voluntary lifesaving superheroes who are on the frontline supporting the ambulance service.”

The vehicle is solely funded by donations, Arrive Alive is a non-government, lottery or NHS funded charity.
