I am looking to start a scheme to have an AED Defibrillator placed somewhere centrally in Church Lench. There are four options being considered and is under consultation with WMAS (West Midlands Ambulance Service).
Whilst we have a fair way to go with getting this off the ground, I am looking for like minded people who would be prepared to undergo training in the use of and respond to incidents requiring the use of an AED.
The training will be provided by WMAS and is not difficult or to scary.
If you would be interested in finding out more about the scheme, or know someone who maybe interested then please contact Richard Shepherd (Community First Responder) Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Defibrillators save lives
Acting quickly when someone is in cardiac arrest and fighting for their life is crucially important.
Around 60,000 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests in the UK every year.
When someone goes into cardiac arrest, every minute without CPR and defibrillation reduces their chances of survival by between 7-10%.
A defibrillator is a machine that delivers an electric shock to the heart when someone is having a cardiac arrest. These machines can also be called AEDs (automated external defibrillators).
Vale of Evesham Community First Responders
Who are the Vale of Evesham Community First Responders?The Vale of Evesham Community First Responders is made up of a group of volunteers who use their free time to provide emergency life support to a specific geographical area. In our case it is Pershore, Evesham, Broadway and the surrounding villages. We work closely with the West Midlands Ambulance Service (WMAS), and are dispatched to 999 incidents by their control team.
The purpose of a Community First Responder is to provide emergency medical care until the professional Ambulance Service arrives on scene. We do not replace the professional service, but we are able to provide necessary support and assistance until their arrival. The Vale of Evesham Community First Responders is aiming to provide 24 hours, seven days per week cover for the residents and businesses within our area. To enable us to achieve this we need to enlist new Community First Responders and the help of other supporters for fundraising.
Like all responder groups across the country, all our time is given voluntarily. The money that we need to purchase equipment, uniforms, etc. has to be raised by us through fundraising events, flag days or public and private donations.
How it all worksA 999 or 112 call is made:- the caller will firstly be transferred to a British Telecom operator, who will say to the caller "emergency which service to do you require?" If the caller asks for the ambulance service the operator will then ask the caller for the telephone number they are calling from (in case the call becomes disconnected) and transfers the call to the ambulance service control.
At the same time as the ambulance control operator receives the call a First Responder Controller receives the same information on a separate computer screen from the ambulance control operator. They contact the CFR by mobile phone and dispatch him/her to the scene.
Training All First Responders attend a training course with the West Midlands Ambulance Service. They learn how to manage patients who are not breathing, including those who may have suffered a cardiac arrest, stroke, etc. They are taught how to treat unconscious patients and a range of other potentially serious conditions.
Meetings are held each month to refresh and extend this training. Responders are assessed after the initial training and at regular intervals thereafter.
Each responder undertakes a nationally recognized exam at the end of the training: First Person on Scene (Intermediate) IHDC – BTEC Level 2

I have been persuaded to run another Half marathon by my children Sarah and James – who are promising to accompany me, so it will be a family event. We are signed in to the Shakespeare Half Marathon which takes place on 27th April at Stratford upon Avon. We decided to invite sponsorship for the work of the “Cystic Fibrosis Trust”. As many will know there is a newly arrived member of our community who has the condition called Tilly, she is granddaughter to Alan and Pat Stephens of Harvington and great granddaughter to Tony and Mary Allen of Church Lench.
I am also aware of members of the community who have lost children in fairly young years to it. On a personal level one of the members of our family, Alex Stobbs has the condition – so there is a lot about.
The good news is that research is producing encouraging results and the quality and quantity of life is improving for patients.
If you would like to support this effort please click on the link below and donate what you feel comfortable offering – we will all be very grateful.
The new thingamabobs added to the local exchange have settled down and the boadband speed at the bottom of Church Lench is now around 4.6 Mb/s up from 3.65 Mb/s.
In real terms that is giving us, at the same time: video streaming of a film + one child on YouTube + one on an interactive game + web browsing
There will be a meeting with BT coming up soon to discuss what comes next. If anyone would like to have questions asked or points made please email to firstname.lastname@example.org
