When our CFR’s log on to start their shift with us they never know what or how many calls they are going to receive. They proudly wear their uniform, helping members of the public, providing emergency care and keeping family members calm until the arrival of an ambulance resource on scene. For many of our CFR’s that training and sense of duty doesn’t switch off when the uniform comes off and they log off from their shifts.
Jacqui and Graham Reeve, based in Lyndhurst Hampshire have both volunteered as CFRs for the past 17 years attending many calls every week. Since April 2021, they have provided nearly 6000 hours of CFR cover between them. While off duty, they were leaving a local gym they came across a member of the public who was unwell with a serious medical emergency. Without a second thought both Jacqui and Graham used their training and knowledge as CFR’s and called for an ambulance and in the meantime provided care and support to the patient.
Their actions contributed to a positive outcome for the member of the public and the crew were grateful for their support, nominating them for a FERF award
Pictured is Jacqui and Graham in receipt of their FERF certificates which they received last week and our congratulations to them both. We thank them for their continued time and commitment as valued CFR’s.
