SAFeR responders are all volunteers,

comitting time on a regular basis to provide support to the local community. Directed by the SECAMB to respond to Emergency calls before the Ambulance can attend.

Vital time is saved when the Responder is able to assess the situation and brief the Emergency Service, generally before the ambulance arrives at the scene. Responders are not called to attend Road Traffic Accidents, pregnancy related calls or incidents involving public disorder but can provide support in almost all other circumstances.
