“Please post anonymously.
“I am already a proud member of staff of the thin blue line.
“I am seriously considering (when recruiting) becoming a community 1st responder in my local area in Kent.
“I know I will be trained by St Johns and know I have to use my own car.
“I have 12+ yrs experience in 1st aid so all the extras I get will just be a bonus / refresher for me. I am NOT saying I know it all, far from it, I’m just confident in the area.
“A couple of questions if I may:
“1. What are your perceptions of community responders?
“2. What is expected of them as a role and when ambulance drivers (sorry paramedics) arrive on scene what do you expect from them?
“3. Watching inside the ambulance last night they are all wearing gopros. Is that the norm and can 1st responders wear their own or is that just for TV ?
