Yorkshire Ambulance Service recruiting volunteers in early 2021

Learn life-saving skills as a YAS volunteer.

The Yorkshire Ambulance Service will be recruiting volunteer community first responders in early 2021.

The role of a Community First Responder is to provide reassurance, potentially life saving treatment and care for the patients of Yorkshire until the arrival of an ambulance resource.

Volunteers will learn how to administer Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR), use an Automated External Defibrillator (AED), provide oxygen therapy and complete a full set of observations, along with the policies and procedures of the CFR role and the Yorkshire Ambulance Service.

To be considered for the role you must be over the age of 18, have a full UK driving licence with no more than 3 penalty points, access to a 4WD, be able to pass our recruitment checks which include an enhanced DBS, occupational health assessment and a satisfactory reference, and be able to commit to a minimum of seven hours each week. It is a flexible role that can be completed from home, and you can volunteer 24/7, so times to suit.

The benefits of the role are being able to give something back locally, providing support to a patient in their time of need, when calling 999. Also gaining knowledge and skills in a first aid capacity, potentially saving a life.

If you have some spare time, and would consider doing something really valuable in 2021, head to: www.communityresponders.yas.nhs.uk.
